2nd GOP primary to undergo recanvass

With the Republican nomination for governor in Kentucky headed for a recanvass, it appears a second contest will also be reviewed.

Rep. Richard Heath of Mayfield, who received 806 fewer votes Tuesday than Rep. Ryan Quarles for the nomination for ag commissioner, told the West Kentucky Star that he plans to call for a recanvass.

Current Agriculture Commissioner James Comer has called for a recanvass of Matt Bevin's 83-vote lead in the GOP contest for the governor nomination.
