Driscoll/Ahern: Driscoll’s hanging on to victory over incumbent in latest counts…

Rep. John Ahern, R-Spokane, continues to slightly trail Democratic challenger John Driscoll in the close race for a legislative seat representing western Spokane.

In a reversal of an earlier trend, Driscoll improved his lead slightly in the latest round of ballot counting. He now leads Ahern by 63 votes.

If things stay this close, it may take a little extra time before this one's over. The race is well within the margin that triggers an automatic recount.
