City Council Candidate Who Didn't Cast A Vote For Himself Loses By 1 Vote

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Cliff Farmer, you really should have voted. He's the city council candidate from Hoxie, Ark., we told you about last week. He did not cast a vote in his own election, and it ended in a tie. Well, yesterday, he lost the tiebreaking roll of the dice. Farmer's wife told The New York Times that her husband had told her, make sure you vote. If I lose by one vote, it's going to be on you. It is not on her. She voted for her husband.
