Salas seeks recount in Southern California Senate race

Assemblywoman Mary Salas (D-San Diego) has requested a recount of ballots in San Diego County in hopes of overcoming a 22-vote deficit between her and Democrat Juan Vargas in the 40th Senate District, The Times' PolitiCal blog reports.

San Diego County election officials confirmed that Salas made the request just before 5 p.m. Monday. Officials in Riverside said they also received a request to tally their ballots again.

Salas will have to pay for the recount out of her own campaign funds.
