2. His acceptance is not required

If he wants a recount, he is going to have to convince a judge. Good luck with that considering the landslide results.

Good riddance. Someone who considers Robert Mugabe and Muammar Gaddafi to be heroes has no place in Congress.

3. Damn, I figured that David Duke endorsement of Barron would push him over the top!

4. Heh. He's losing by 50% but wants a recount?

Looks like the voters have made a smart decision.
