Ohio Recount?

A blogger e-mails:

K-Lo (If I may call you that)

I’ve been following this recount thing closely – sure it would happen and am now not as sure.

Not only has Kerry distanced himself from the Ohio recount but he’s also not picking up anywhere near the provisionals needed.

So, I did the math and looked at Ohio state law. The recount folks will have to raise five times what they already have and I don’t think they can do it for a lost cause.

Hope this eases your mind. It eases mine. I was never worried about Kerry overtaking Bush’s lead but it was what John Fund calls the “margin of litigation” that worried me and Kerry seeing Ohio as a last chance as 2008 slipped away.
