>>Recount May be Needed in GOP U.S. Senate Election in PA
(Harrisburg, PA) -- State election officials say if vote totals stay as close as they are between Mehmet Oz and Dave McCormick, a recount would be required by state law. Throughout Wednesday, Oz's lead over McCormick in the in GOP U.S. Senate election fluctuated between a thousand and 2,000 votes, a razor-thin lead of only one-tenth and two-tenths of one percent. Under Pennsylvania law, a recount is automatically triggered if the difference between candidates falls within five-tenths of one percent of the total vote. Secretary of State Leigh Chapman would have to order such action if it becomes necessary. For this race, the count would be scheduled to begin on Wednesday, June 1st.
