With the state certifying Lori Trahan's 122-vote lead in the Third Congressional District primary, Trahan will not go forward with a recount.
"We will not be seeking a recount as the secretary of state has certified the vote which shows that Lori is the Democratic nominee for Congress in the Third District," Trahan spokeswoman Gretchen Grosky said Monday morning.
According to state-certified results provided by the Trahan campaign, Trahan received 18,527 votes to Dan Koh's 18,405. A total of 88,818 votes were cast across the district in a primary race that saw 10 Democrats vie for retiring U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas' seat.
Trahan, a Westford resident, and Koh, an Andover resident, had both filed petitions for a recount Friday.
"As we have said since Tuesday, Dan is committed to making sure all ballots are counted," Koh's campaign said in a statement Monday morning. "That is why we are moving forward with our petition for a recount. We want the process to progress as swiftly as possible so that the ultimate nominee will have adequate time and resources to win in November."
In a statement, Trahan said, "I will fully cooperate with a recount to instill confidence in the hearts and minds of voters of the Third District that I am the Democratic nominee."
Trahan's campaign said the presumptive winner is looking toward the Nov. 6 general election, in which she will go up against Republican Rick Green of Pepperell.
"I'm energized and ready for what will be a hard-fought battle against a Republican with deep pockets and strong ties to (President Donald) Trump," Trahan said in the statement. "My campaign is prepared to go forward to keep this seat Democratic and to continue the Tsongas legacy of serving the working families of this district."
