West seeks hearing after Murphy declares victory when St. Lucie board misses noon deadline; unofficial results have Murphy increasing lead

By Christine Stapleton
Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

FORT PIERCE — Patrick Murphy’s campaign declared victory this afternoon in his race for Congress against U.S. Rep. Allen West, in which final — but uncertified — totals from St. Lucie County elections officials showed him finishing with 50.16 percent of the vote.

West’s camp, however, said it has no intention of conceding and that Gov. Rick Scott and Secretary of State Ken Detzner “will have to take a look at these recounts,” West campaign manager Tim Edson said.

Preliminary numbers released around 2 p.m. by the canvassing board show West, R-Palm Beach Gardens, with 52,704 votes in St. Lucie County and Murphy with 65,841. The state Division of Elections website this afternoon lists Murphy the winner with 50.28 to West’s 49.7 — a spread of 0.58 percent — when the St. Lucie totals are added to those of Martin County and the parts of Palm Beach County that are within District 18.
