Those three toss-up House races? All are now out of recount range

Last week, we wrote about gains the GOP was making in statehouse races this election cycle. At the time, three state House races were so close that it looked like they’d go to recount.

It doesn’t look that way anymore. In votes counted as of late Monday afternoon, all three races have moved out of the recount margin. To wit:

  • In the 26th District, incumbent Democrat Rep. Larry Seaquist trailed Republican challenger Michelle Caldier, 49.4 percent to 50.6 percent.
  • In the 28th District, Democrat Christine Kilduff led Republican Page Wagemenn, 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent.
  • In the 35 District, incumbent Democrat Rep. Kathy Haigh trailed Republican Dan Griffey, 49.4 percent to 50.6 percent

An automatic recount occurs if candidates are separated by less than one-half of 1 percentage point.

If these margins stand, the GOP will gain four seats in the House.
