As expected, there will be a recount in the race for State House District 146. Incumbent Al Edwards has asked for the recount of the Democratic primary election votes. He lost by just ten votes to longtime rival Boris Miles. The Texas Democratic party says Edwards this morning filed the necessary paperwork and paid the deposit for the recount. Miles has declared himself the winner.

As a formality, the state party still has to approve the recount.
