More than two weeks after the elections, Democratic candidate for the State Senate Sean McCann says he will request a recount.

The results of the election showed McCann losing to Republican Margaret O’Brien by a small margin.  The Kalamazoo County Board of Canvassars says their count showed O’Brien won by 59 votes out of more than 80-thousand that were cast.

O’Brien  says she is confident any recount would confirm her as the winner.
