In the French election, looks like Le Pen and Macron have made it through.
Hi, Folks -
On the initial count of first round voting, looks like Le Pan and Macron each have about 23% of the votes, according to multiple Tweets from a variety of sources including the BBC.
One Tweet mentions, "If Macron v Le Pen then, as I was saying on Sunday Politics, 1st time in history of 5th republic, neither mainstream party made 2nd round" -- BBC presenter Andrew Neil
Neil mentions in another Tweet that this represents the "collapse of the French Socialist Party" with perhaps only about 6% of the vote. By Hobie Link
