Democrat Mah Loses Kansas House Race by 21 Votes

ballot imageTOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Local election officials say a Democratic legislator who's a vocal critic of Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach has lost her race for re-election by only 21 votes out of nearly 11,000 cast in her district. State Representative Ann Mah could ask for a recount in her race in the 54th Kansas House District against Republican challenger Ken Corbet. Both candidates are from Topeka, but the district covers parts of Shawnee, Douglas and Osage counties. Shawnee County officials finished their review of ballots late Thursday. At one point, Corbet led by 44 votes. A political action committee formed by Kobach supported Corbet. Kobach waged an unsuccessful legal battle to block the candidates from picking up new votes by contacting voters who cast provisional ballots to help them correct problems.
