Sour grapes, or just a public servant doing what he can to ensure the democratic process is as free and as fair as can be?
From The C-J’s Joe Gerth:
Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo’s U.S. Senate campaign said it will request a recanvass of voting machines and absentee ballots following his narrow loss to Attorney General Jack Conway in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.
“The party deserves to have a clear winner so the nominee can begin moving toward the fall,” said Kim Geveden, Mongiardo’s spokesman.
Allison Haley, Conway’s spokeswoman, was stunned. “You’re kidding,” she said. “He conceded.”
Conway won the race by less than 4,000 votes — an average of fewer than 1 vote per precinct — in taking the primary by less than one percent of the vote.
