How Phil Weiser and the AG Race was Called

The Secretary of State reports 590,895 votes counted late Thursday, with a 5,131-vote advantage for Phil Weiser in his race with Joe Salazar. The estimate is that the final vote total will be about 600,000 (currently 627,839 counted in governor’s race, which usually gets more than an AG race).

Assuming there are 11,000 more votes to count (at most), Salazar will need 73 percent of the final vote, or 8,100 out of the 11,000 to be 5,200 votes ahead of Weiser (Weiser would get 2,900). Possible, but unlikely.
