Senator Jim Reynolds

Senator Jim Reynolds who won last Tuesday by 159 votes now is involved in a recount. It is believed that several voting irregularities took place in District 43. His opponent Dan Boren has also requested a recount. Vote totals were slow coming in last Tuesday night. In Cleveland County, a voting machine lost power and the precinct votes were recounted.

They put up a candidate with a famous name, kept him below the radar screen for the entirety of the campaign, then blasted Senator Reynolds with $100K of deceptive television ads and a week's worth of attack mail. They came within 159 votes.

The recount starts tomorrow and could take two or more days. Stayed tuned.
