From Scott Lay’s Around the Capitol:
In AD36, Democrat Steve Fox just took a 147-vote lead over Republican Ron Smith in what is expected to be the last batch of ballots. Smith had led by 1,952 votes on election night, marking the largest come-from-behind in a district largely uncontested by both parties.
|Steve Fox (D)||Kern||4,631|
|Ron Smith (R)||Kern||6,691|
A recount is possible, meaning that neither candidate may be sworn in tomorrow at noon with other members at the commencement of the 2013-14 legislative session. Counties must certify results to the Secretary of State by Friday, December 7.
