FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) -- U.S. Rep Allen West says he's asking a Florida judge to order a recount for one county in his congressional race.
West's campaign says he filed a complaint Tuesday along with eight early voters in St. Lucie County. He wants all early ballots to be recounted in that county.
The filing could not immediately be confirmed with the court clerk and West's campaign did not provide a copy.
St. Lucie conducted a recount of three days of early voting Sunday that gave West a slight bump, but not enough to overcome Democrat Patrick Murphy, who is the unofficial winner in the District 18 race.
West argues a more extensive recount could uncover additional errors. Murphy's attorney and the supervisor of elections provided no immediate comment.
