Edwards wins recount

Posted By on Tue, Nov 18, 2008 at 4:46 PM

The Pulaski County Election Commission recounted ballots in the state representative race, District 38, between Democrat John Edwards and Republican Kelly Eichler. The count produced some small changes on both sides,  but the final total still leaves Edwards the victor by 77 votes, 7,067 to 6,990.

All county certified returns here. Interesting: Eichler won at-poll voting; Edwards won early voting and, by 69 votes, absentees. Every vote counts, as they say.

NOTED: Democrat Kathy Lewison won a 91-vote victory, out of more than 11,400 cast, over Republican state Rep. Sid Rosenbuam in the race for a WLR seat on the County Quorum Court.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
