Monroe Narrowly Ahead Of Perry In Senate 24

June 6, 2012, 5:28 AM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The battle for the Republican nomination for a South Dakota Senate seat that includes the state's capital could be headed for a recount.

Secretary of State Jason Gant says that with all precincts reporting, former lawmaker Jeff Monroe is ahead of state Rep. Tad Perry by 36 votes - or less than 1 percent.

Gant says a legislative race qualifies for a recount when the margin is less than 2 percent.

Perry is the former head of South Dakota's university system. Perry had served two years in the state House.

The District 24 seat is open this election season due to the retirement of incumbent Bob Gray of Pierre, a Republican.

Gant says that after the June 12 state canvas, Perry would have three days to request a recount.
