AFTERSHOCKS:Veteran Legislator Appears to Lose Seat in Recount (The Associated Press, November 8, 2002)
A recount of votes in Wayne County has turned up an upset in the legislative election.
Veteran Democratic state House member Phil Baddour Junior lost to Republican challenger Louis Pate by a narrow margin of 164 votes.
Votes were recounted by the county board of elections after a software error caused thousands of Wayne County ballots not to be counted.
Baddour's loss would give Republicans an edge in the state House.
