Much activity in the corridor.... 
Ann Wagner rushes out of the Hall visibly upset and heads into a nearby room.
After a while Matt Schlapp, manager of Maria Cino's campaign, is walking by and checking his messages...as Wagner and Steele emerge. 

Anuzis is also active, talking with Ray Wagner and then going into a huddle with his supporters.

At about 3:55 p.m. Steele announces, "I will step aside because I think the party is ready for something different."  He releases his supporters, but asks them to vote for Maria Cino.
