Citing 'too much support for a recount,' Democrat Kevin Deely refuses to concede 131st District race to incumbent Republican Justin Simmons. But Democratic Campaign Committee Chairman Brendan Boyle says 'not enough ballots to win.'
Incumbent Republican Justin Simmons edged out Democratic challenger Kevin Deely by 16 votes in Lehigh County in the 131st state House race. In Northampton County, Simmons won by 432 votes, the Simmons campaign said.
With almost all the votes counted, the race for the 131st district in Lehigh County is only one vote apart, and over 400 apart in Northampton County.
In an open letter to supporters, 131st District challenger Kevin Deely looks to raise funds for a recount while incumbent state Rep. Justin Simmons calls for him to concede.
Lehigh County election officials say there are still too many additional ballots left to count before they can call the hotly contested 131st District House race.
