MISSOURI: Trump is the Certified Winner by Very Small Margin


Close call for the Donald. Do you think Ted is going to ask for a recount of votes?

Republican businessman Donald Trump and former Democratic Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were certified Tuesday as the winners of Missouri’s presidential primaries, though a recount remains a possibility.

The official results of the March 15 primaries show that Trump and Clinton both prevailed over their challengers by a mere fraction of a percent.

Trump led Texas Sen. Ted Cruz by 1,965 votes out of more than 939,000 cast in the Republican primary — a margin of about one-fifth of a percentage point.

Clinton led Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by 1,574 votes out of more than 629,000 cast in the Democratic primary — a margin of one-quarter of a percentage point.

Under Missouri law, candidates who lose by less than one-half of a percentage point can request a recount at state expense. They have seven days to do so.
