After 3-day recount, incumbent Democrat loses Senate seat to
Ileana Garcia by 34 votes

After three long days of a painstaking recount, early
results on Thursday showed Latinas for Trump co-founder
Ileana Garcia leading Democratic incumbent José Javier
Rodríguez in the race for Senate District 37 by a mere 34
votes.

Rodríguez’s loss is a stunning blow to Senate Democrats,
who went into the election cycle hoping to flip three seats
to reach parity in the chamber and ended up losing one seat,
a balance that will make it tougher for them to influence
the GOP’s legislative agenda in the near future.

Note: This is a State Senate seat, but still great
news.
