HARRISBURG (AP) – The Republican candidate trailing in a statewide recount for an open seat on Commonwealth Court is conceding the race to Democrat Lori Dumas. Drew Crompton congratulated Dumas and the other winners Tuesday in the judicial races that were on the statewide ballot in PA’s Nov. 2 election. A statewide recount was mandated after Dumas’ finished within a half-percentage point ahead of Crompton. That’s according to unofficial returns posted online by the state Department of State. With counties wrapping up their recount Tuesday, Dumas led Crompton by about 21,000 votes. Republicans won three of four statewide judicial races on the Nov. 2 ballot.
