(AP) - James Comer says he will ask for a review of vote totals in
volatile Republican primary for governor. Kentucky
Comer said Tuesday night that he would seek a recanvass. Unofficial returns showed him in a virtual tie with businessman Matt Bevin.
Republicans Hal Heiner and Will T. Scott conceded early.
There is no runoff election in
, and no automatic recounts. State
law allows for recanvassing only if a county clerk or a county board of
elections notices a discrepancy or if a candidate makes a written request to
the Secretary of State. Kentucky
Comer says he owes it to his supporters to request a recanvass. However, he says he told Bevin that he would help get him elected in November if Bevin is ultimately declared the winner.
