CO Senate Recount Looms, Could Take a Month or More to Resolve

Many political observers speculated that the Colorado U.S. Senate race would go down-to-the-wire, if not with the margin-of-error.

Late polling showed the race between Republican Ken Buck and Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet as one of the closest in the country.

Secretary of State-elect Scott Gessler told Battle ‘10 that a recount could take more than a month. Military and provisional ballots would need to be counted before a tentative final vote is achieved, or around 8 days after the election. If the margin remains within 0.5 percent, then the recount battle will ensue, as lawsuits fly.

It could be the middle of December before the result is finalized.
