Tie in NM House race could end in coin flip

LAS CRUCES A tie in a race for a New Mexico House of Representatives seat could end up being broken by a coin flip or other game of chance.

The race between Democrat Joanne Ferrary and incumbent Republican Terry McMillan for the 37th District seat ended with an even split of more than 12,000 votes.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that if a recount leaves the race still even New Mexico law requires a game of chance be used as a tie-breaker.
