Democrat's win stands after Georgia state House race recount

By The Associated Press

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A recount in a Georgia state House race changed the margin by one vote, but didn't change the winner.

Chatham County Elections Supervisor Russell Bridges tells local news outlets that Derek Mallow defeated Anne Allen Westbrook by 19 votes to win the Democratic nomination in state House District 163. The district covers parts of Savannah.

The original tally had Mallow winning the Aug. 11 election by 20 votes, but a hand recount found one vote for Mallow had been counted twice.

Mallow faces no opposition in November. Longtime incumbent J. Craig Gordon didn't seek reelection.

Westbrook has conceded, but continues to voice concerns about swings in the number of ballots reported in the race.

An earlier recount of a Republican runoff in a northeast Georgia Senate race similarly resulted with the preliminary leader being affirmed as the winner. There, Bo Hatchett bested Stacy Hall by 38 votes for his party's nomination in Senate District 50, which includes all or parts of Banks, Franklin, Habersham, Hall, Jackson Rabun, Stephens and Towns counties. Hatchett will face Democrat Dee Daley in the November general election.
