Senate District 50 race update

There are new developments in the Senate District 50 race between Scott Delano and Dixie Newman.

Newman was certified as the winner of the race on August 14th by a margin of one vote over Delano.

Now, Delano’s campaign tells News 25 that they have petitioned the courts for a revote in five split precincts where he claims election errors were found during the primary election on August 6th.

Delano says that a hearing with a special advocate judge of the state’s Supreme Court is expected later this week to determine if new ballots need to be cast.

News 25 reached out to Dixie Newman, but has not heard back yet for comment.

We will continue to keep you updated as information becomes available.
