Schmuki to seek recount

The Associated Press is reporting Steve Schmuki is seeking a recount after initial returns showed him losing by nine votes. (Ht: commenter J. Gravelle).

Ellen Morris-Gutierrez, Schmuki's campaign manager, says she's heard from some voters that they were given absentee ballots from the wrong wards.

She says the campaign has many questions and a recount is the way to find the answers.

I think at nine votes a candidate is pretty much obligated to ask for a recount on behalf of his supporters, and I suspect there will be no bad feelings among the Democrats as a result.
