SEXTON DESCRIBES WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. CHUCK GRASSLEY AND DAVID WALKER HAVE KNOWN FOR YEARS. DAVE AND I ARE LONG TIME FRIENDS AND WE HAVE SERVED TOGETHER FOR MANY YEARS. THE ROCHESTER CITY COUNCIL. THERE NEIGHBORS WERE FRIENDS. NOW WE LIVE IN THE SAME STREET. I BOUGHT THE HOUSE NEXT TO YOU. NOW THESE TWO STAND AS CLOSE TO EACH OTHER AS THEY CAN BE IN A SENSE OF CHOICE. WALKER, A REPUBLICAN, CHALLENGES GRASSI, A DEMOCRAT FOR THE STATE REP. SEAT IN ROCHESTERS WARD FOUR ON ELECTION NIGHT. WALKER WAS AHEAD THROUGH ONE. A RECOUNT TODAY UNDER AN HUGE INQUIRY REVEALED A BALANCE WITH EACH MAN AWARDED 970 VOTES. Well, it’s just a sign of the times. IT WAS JUST FIGHTED HARD AT ALL LEVELS. SO HERE’S WHAT IT IS. I TELL YOU THE WEIGHT OF TRUTH IS BRUTAL SINCE ELECTION DAY. AND I’M JUST NUMBERING OF THIS THING HERE RIGHT NOW WHAT MAKES THIS TEMPORARY RESULT EVEN MORE REMARKABLE IS THE FACT THAT THE NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, AT 400 MEMBERS, IS ON THE THRESHOLD OF A PERFECTLY PARTIAL DIVISION BETWEEN REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS, THE 28 AM RECOUNTS STARTED MONDAY AND WILL CONTINUE UNTIL EARLY NEXT WEEK, THIS ROCHESTER RACE AND ITS ONE VOTE WAS DEEMED AS THE ONE OF THE ONE OF THE REMAINING RECOUNTS COULD STILL TURN ADDITIONAL SEATS UP AND DETERMINE THE MAJORITY HOLDS. BUT THE RESOLUTION OF THIS VOLUME WILL BE CRITICAL. ACCOUNT DISPUTES DURING TODAY’S POSTCOUNT MAY BE RE-CHECKED BY THE BALLOT LAW COMMISSION. IF THE COMMISSION DOES NOT RESOLVE THE EQUAL BREAKING, THEN IT IS THE OBJECT OF THE LEGISLATION TO DETERMINE THAT THE NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE OF REREPRESENTATIVES DETERMINE THE QUALIFICATIONS AND ITS MEMBERS, AND SO IT WOULD BE THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO STRIKE THE BALANCE AND DETERMINE WHICH CANDIDATE ONE SEAT HAS
