BREAKING: Bernie Sanders' campaign says it has requested a recanvass in Kentucky presidential primary. pic.twitter.com/yRUxSP2Up1— AP Politics (@AP_Politics) May 24, 2016
I just have to ask, "What is the purpose of this exercise?"
From the Washington Post:
Sanders opted not to request a full recount, which his campaign would have had to pay for. The recanvass would simply lead to a review of voting machine tallies and absentee ballots, to determine whether human error switched any of the reports to the secretary of state. At stake: One delegate from the sixth congressional district, which covers the state capitol in Frankfort and the state's second largest city, Lexington, and where the initial count found a Clinton lead of just a few hundred votes.
That ONE delegate is really gonna close Hillary's delegate lead of +280.
There's a way to exit gracefully, Bernie. There really is.
