Democratic Mo. AG candidate to ask for recount
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A Democratic attorney general candidate who lost by less than 800 votes plans to ask for a re-count.
Margaret Donnelly's campaign announced Friday that it would ask for the re-count after last week's primary election returns are certified. State law allows candidates to ask for a re-count if they lose by less than one percent.
The secretary of state's office has until Aug. 26 to certify the results.
Unofficial but complete election results show that Chris Koster beat Donnelly by 0.2 percent with more than 346,000 votes cast.
Koster's campaign in a written statement says it's confident that Harrisonville senator will still have the most votes.
Koster plans to continue campaigning for the November election against Republican Sen. Michael Gibbons of Kirkwood.
