The Pulaski County Election Commission recounted ballots in the state representative race, District 38, between Democrat John Edwards and Republican Kelly Eichler. The count produced some small changes on both sides, but the final total still leaves Edwards the victor by 77 votes, 7,067 to 6,990.
All county certified returns here. Interesting: Eichler won at-poll voting; Edwards won early voting and, by 69 votes, absentees. Every vote counts, as they say.
NOTED: Democrat Kathy Lewison won a 91-vote victory, out of more than 11,400 cast, over Republican state Rep. Sid Rosenbuam in the race for a WLR seat on the County Quorum Court.
