Rep. Allen West loses more ground to challenger after recount

Rep. Allen West’s (R-FL) reelection prospects grew dimmer Sunday, as a partial recount showed the freshman congressman, who was already projected to lose his race, falling further behind his opponent.

Democrat Patrick Murphy gained 242 votes in St. Lucie County after a recount of early ballots there, boosting his lead to about 2,100 over West, the Tea Party favorite who made a name for himself in Washington by vociferously attacking Democrats, claiming scores of them were communists and equating them to slaveowners. The county had until noon Sunday to certify their results.

2. I wonder if West knew that it is common knowledge

among election officials that, in a recount, the winner usually gains more votes and the loser usually still loses.
