Hollis French Retains Senate Seat
An Anchorage Democratic senator has retained his seat in the state Senate.
The Division of Elections says a recount of votes in Senate District J today shows incumbent Hollis French as the winner, defeating Republican Bob Bell.
Division Director Gail Fenumiai certified the election last week with French holding a 51-vote lead. Bell on Monday asked for the recount.
The recount widened the gap to 59 votes.
