Kentucky's house district 7 race not yet decided
Although the 2012 General Election is over, voters in Kentucky's seventh house district must wait to find out who's going to represent them in Frankfort. The district covers Union County and parts of Daviess and Henderson counties. Unofficial results have Democrat John Arnold winning over Republican Tim Kline by a margin of just five votes. Kline has not conceded the race. He wants the Kentucky secretary of state’s office to recanvass the district.
Secretary of state Director of communication Lynn Zellen says recanvassing is a way to make sure all the numbers are double checked and added up correctly.
“Well in a recanvass for a general assembly race the person who is requesting the recanvass has until 4 p.m. the Tuesday following the election to file a written request with the Sec of State’s office," Zellen said. "And following that the county board of elections will conduct a recanvass on the Thursday following the election, so Nov. 15.”
Representative John Arnold, an 18-year incumbent, was not available for comment.
