Bernie Sanders Demands KY Recanvass

That ole Bernie Sanders is not going gently into the good night. Now he has requested a recanvass of the Kentucky Democratic primary results.

This from Politico:

The request for a review of the total vote comes one week after Kentucky's Democratic primary contest where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed victory in the contest with a narrow lead of 1,924 votes over Sanders out of 454,573 total votes, according to the Associated Press.

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, a Clinton supporter, called the race for Clinton on Tuesday night even though the Associated Press deemed the contest too close to call.

The Vermont senator's campaign will ask Grimes' office to review absentee ballots and the voting machines in all of Kentucky's 120 counties.
