SALT LAKE COUNTY -- Pollster Dan Jones is projecting that Sim Gill will beat out incumbent Lohra Miller in the Salt Lake County district attorney's race.
Jones projects Gill will win by about 2 percent. With 18 percent of the precincts reporting, Gill had 53 percent of the vote; Miller had 43 percent.
Sarah Dallof was with Miller as the projections came down. Miller said, "The night's still young, we're still cautiously optimistic. Whatever happens, we're good with it."
Gill said, "We're of course very excited, but we're guardedly optimistic ... I hope Dan is right, and we will celebrate when it is right."
This was a rematch of the 2006 race in which Gill lost to Miller by 3 percent.
Miller said she's proud of the work she's done over the past four years and the campaign she ran.
"I've made incredible changes in domestic violence. I've improved how we prosecute DUI and elder abuse, and I've began a criminal justice system reform that is going to be an incredible improvement for everyone here in Salt Lake County," she said.
