L. J. Bryant, of Augusta has made the request in the District 52 race.
Bryant, a Democrat, lost to Republican John Hutchison by 44 votes.
Here's more on the story from KARK 4 Content Partner Max Brantley with the Arkansas Times Arkansas blog:
I just faxed a request to all four county election commissions requesting a recount. I'm on my lunch break at work so I have to just be brief.
I'm extremely thankful for the support of folks across District 52. This razor thin election has caused many to want me to request a recount. We may get more votes and win or less votes in said recount. No one distrusts the process; however, when it is this close we wanted to ensure the folks of District 52 and Arkansas that there were no doubts about the outcome."
