Recount coming in SD Senate race split by 30 votes
PIERRE (AP) — South Dakota candidate for state Senate David Johnson is working on petitions for a recount.
Rapid City incumbent Republican Phil Jensen won 1,234 votes — 30 more than Johnson in Tuesday's primary.
The difference between the two candidates is within the 2 percent margin required for a recount. The winner will face Democrat Robin Page in the November election.
