In Race for Texas House District 105, Not Only a Recount, But Now a Protest

By now, you're probably aware that a week after Election Day, the dust hasn't settled in Irving, where three-term incumbent Linda Harper-Brown and Democratic challenger Bob Romano are still tussling over who gets to rep Texas House District 105. Knocked out by a mere 20 votes, Romano's seeking a recount: "In the coming days, my focus will be on doing everything I can to see that every ballot is counted and that every voter’s intent is known," he writes on his Web site.
