Recount in effect for Florida House District 118 legislative race

A recount is in effect for the legislative race for District 118 of the Florida House of Representatives.

Ballots are being recounted in the race between Democrat Robert Asencio and Republican David Rivera.

Tuesday’s unofficial results had Asencio leading by 68 votes, merely a tenth of a percentage point.

State law requires a recount when results are within a half of a percentage point.
