Congressman may soon be out of options in the race for the district vs. Murphy.
A St. Lucie County judge has denied a request by U.S. Rep. Allen West for a full recount of early votes cast in St. Lucie County in the race for the 18th Congressional district.
Attorneys for West argued that discrepancies in vote totals and reported equipment malfunctions warranted a recount to ensure the integrity of the race.
Attorneys for Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker and Patrick Murphy, the projected winner of the race, countered that Judge Dan Vaughn would have invited error and chaos if he had sided with West.
Vaughn said the elements for a temporary injunction had not been met.
West, the Tea Party favorite who appeared to be headed for defeat, has refused to concede.
