Pick a Card

They have an odd way of handling things in the wild, wild, West...

From HuffPo...
The 10 of clubs wasn't quite good enough.

That's what Carl Moore Sr. drew Thursday in the tiebreaker between two rural Nevada county commission candidates who sought the Republican nomination in the June 8 primary. Nye County Commissioner Andrew "Butch" Borasky, who survived a recall last year and is seeking a second term, drew a queen of clubs to advance to the November general election.

Both tied in the primary and remained tied after two recounts. State law calls for candidates to draw lots to get a winner when an election is deadlocked. It can be cutting cards, throwing dice, drawing straws or flipping a coin.

Merlino then shuffled the cards seven times and fanned their fate out on a table."We decided on high card,"

I guess it's better than a duel at high noon.
