St. Lucie recount results shows Patrick Murphy still ahead of Allen West [View all]

Source: WPTV

FORT PIERCE -- Results of recounting more than 37,000 St. Lucie County ballots were announced shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday and preliminary figures given by Canvassing Board member Tod Mowery placed Jupiter Democrat Patrick Murphy farther ahead of Republican Allen West than before the two-day effort began.

Murphy campaign senior advisor Eric Johnson was quick to reaffirm victory.

"As far as we're concerned, this puts an end to it," Johnson said. "The West people demanded a recount. They got that retabulation and Patrick Murphy gained a margin of 242 votes.


Mowery said the final count was 65,841 votes for Murphy and 52,704 for West. The results still are unofficial.

Please note this is separate from the earlier story about West trying to get an exemption from the noon deadline after it was missed.

This new story about the actual recount results shows that West would have been losing by an even larger margin with those results counted.
