Recount Says Koenen to Face Wagner in November
A recount didn't change the outcome of Missouri's 2nd congressional district democratic primary vote.
Democrat Glenn Koenen, of Oakville, will face republican Ann Wagner for Missouri's second congressional seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Democratic challenger Harold Whitfield, of Kirkwood, requested a recount of the Aug. 7 primary results after original returns showed a 48-vote difference between Whitfield and Koenen.
The recount completed Wednesday shows Koenen winning the nomination with 7,894 votes to Whitfield's 7,848. Totals changed slightly with the recount but not enough for Whitfield to capture the majority of the votes, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday.
