John DeJongh missed winning the race for Governor earlier this month by two votes. To avoid a runoff, the law required that he get 50% plus 1 vote. After absentee ballots were counted, he missed the mark.
There will be a runoff Tuesday, Nov. 21. The St. John Source reported the process will cost the islands approximately $200,000. DeJong and Gregory Francis will run against the ticket headed by Lt. Gov. Kenneth Mapp.
Check back here for results Tuesday night.
