In Hurricane Tuesday night it looked like Sam Cole was set to be the new mayor. In fact, as the precincts came in, Cole was ahead of Scott Edwards and Frank Sergent all night long.
That is, until the early hours of the morning -- when the early voting ballots were counted.
Scott Edwards picked up enough in the early voting to take the lead - and win the election by 25 votes.
In the past few weeks, someone sent out fliers to Hurricane residents containing information about Edwards that he says were outright lies....but Edwards thinks those flyers may have actually helped him win.
