Recount to determine tight Massachusetts congressional race

LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) — A recount will determine the winner of a Democratic congressional primary in Massachusetts.

Two candidates, Dan Koh and Lori Trahan, have filed the necessary signatures for a recount of the votes in the 3rd Congressional District, which could begin on Thursday.

Koh and Trahan were among 10 Democrats seeking their party’s nomination for the seat held by U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas, who is retiring.

Unofficial returns showed Trahan ahead by 52 votes prior to a review of provisional ballots from Tuesday’s primary.

A spokeswoman for Trahan tells the Eagle Tribune of Lawrence the candidate is confident her margin will hold up, but was committed to participating in the recount so voters in the district would have full confidence in the results.

Republican Rick Green was unopposed in the Republican primary.
