Drawing decides southeast Kansas election
IOLA, Kan. (AP) — A southeast Kansas man has won a seat on the Allen County Commission thanks to the luck of a draw.
The Iola Register reports (http://bit.ly/1pMJP5G ) Jerry Daniels and Jim Mueller were vying for the Republican nomination in last week’s primary election.
A recount by hand confirmed the initial electronic tabulation of a tie, with each candidate receiving 255 votes. So on Monday, County Commission chairman Jim Talkington reached into a bowl and pulled out a slip of paper with Daniels’ name.
Mueller, of Moran, said he won’t seek a second recount.
Daniels, who lives in Humboldt, doesn’t have a Democratic opponent in November’s general election, meaning he’ll fill a vacant seat on the commission in January.
