Representative Buck Decides Not to Ask for Recount

Posted:

SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA--State Representative Sam Buck says he won't ask for a recount of the election results for District 49.

Friday at 5 p.m. was the deadline.

It was a close one in Tuesday's election with Buck's Republican challenger Tommy Hardin beating Buck by just 36 votes.

Representative Buck says he thinks straight party voting hurt his chances for re-election, but says he will reconsider running in the coming years.

Again, he will not ask for a recount.
