It's been almost two weeks since Election Day. But the race for one U-S congressional seat in Florida still isn't over. Saint Lucie County's Supervisor of Elections has ordered a recount of early voting ballots in the race between Republican Representative Allen West and his Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy. West has been lobbying for a recount citing issues in the way the ballots were counted. The recount was expected to begin this morning. Murphy has already declared victory in the race. As of Saturday, Murphy leads West by just over 19-hundred votes. But the votes are considered unofficial until November 20-th, when state election officials have said the results will be certified.
