Conway recount UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, May 23, 2008 at 1:06 PM

Tipster says Linda Tyler won the recount for the hard-fought Democratic primary race in Conway for state House District 45. My note says she beat Terry Fiddler 792 to 764.

This is the race we mentioned earlier, in which Tyler supporters argued that Fiddler was a Republican running as a Democrat for political reasons. Supporter of Republican Sen. Gil Baker, former U.S. Sen. Tim Hutchinson, etc.

UPDATE: I've confirmed the recount with a member of the county election commission. Fiddler was reportedly distraught at the news. Tyler was refunded her fee for the cost of the recount since it changed the outcome.
