A second look at two tight legislative races has netted the same results - victory for the incumbents.
In a northern Kentucky Senate race, Republican Sen. Jack Westwood finished with 21,057 votes to Democrat Kathy Groob's 20,250 votes. Meanwhile a central Kentucky House race finished with Republican state Rep. Tim Moore of Elizabethtown defeating Democrat Mike Weaver.
Local county election officials conducted a recanvassing of the races on Thursday. Secretary of State spokesman Les Fugate says candidates have until Friday to petition for a recount.
The General Assembly's balance of power won't change following the election.
Heading in, the GOP controlled the Senate 22-14-1, while Democrats led the House 62-35. If the results hold, the Senate numbers would stay the same, while the Democrats would lead 65-35 in the House.
