No matter what the outcome

The four-way tie in the Controller's race, and the potential of no Democrat advancing to the general, will trigger real talk about whether the top two is the best system to achieve its laudable goals.  Maybe...

It has always been my biggest beef with the system, the potential for random wacky results.  It is not that the top two doesn't have a potentially moderating effect on average.  But the price you pay is an increase in the odds of outliers occurring.
