Thomas asks for recount

Haines Republican Representative Bill Thomas has asked for a recount.

Thomas is 34 votes behind political newcomer Jonathon Kreiss-Tomkins of Sitka for House District 34.

Elections Division Director Gail Fenumiai has set the recount date for Monday at 9 a.m. in the Juneau office.

Meanwhile, Alaska’s 2012 general election has been certified.

Fenumiai says the State Review Board has completed its review of all precincts.

But the Senate District J recount will not be finished until tomorrow (Thursday), she says.

Republican Bob Bell is 51 votes behind Anchorage Democratic Senator Hollis French and asked for a recount.
