Last gasp recount in Gloucester

Gloucester Democrats filed for a recount today for one of their losing freeholder candidates after Republicans broke through a stronghold majority for a two-seat gain.

Republican victor Vincent Nestore is leading Democrat Heather Simmons by around 100 votes of over 38,000 cast for each. But the Dems aren’t done yet, according to the Gloucester County Times, even thought they waited until the last day to file the recount request.

Democratic county chairman and state Sen. Fred Madden (D-Washington Twp.) called the margin “razor-thin” speaking to the paper.
