SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Early returns indicate a landslide victory for the Cain/Ross ticket, a virtual deadlock until Tuesday. Cain successfully quelled rumors that threatened to de-rail his campaign, including lack of experience and deeply partisan hair. In his concession speech earlier this evening, defeated incumbent Cole Hamels thanked supporters for a hard-fought campaign. Philadelphia's hopes now turn to dark-horse candidate Joe Blanton, who will face off against Madison Bumgarner. The 21-year-old candidate is seeking to capitalize on voter mistrust of the Phillies and promises to "bring an outsider's perspective" to the Bay Area. Tonight's televised debate begins at 4:57 PDT.
Today's newspapers, under the jump. JPGs only this time, but print-quality PDFs of each are available from the Newseum until about midnight EDT.
