It looks like the race for the Republican ticket in the ninth Congressional District has been resolved.
According to numbers released by the Secretary of State’s office Tuesday, candidate Christopher Sheldon received 11,046 votes. Adam Chaprales had 10,967 votes.
Chaprales issued this statement yesterday: “I am disappointed to learn of this result, but I immediately called Chris Sheldon to congratulate him on a hard-fought race and to pledge him my full support in the general election. I am also notifying the Secretary of State that I am releasing the Sheldon campaign from its request to have certain votes recounted, out of my belief that a recount would not serve the best interest of the municipal governments that would need to fund it or the Republican Party as it chooses a nominee.”
