Both candidates in recorder's race taken aback

Both Huron County recorder candidates were shocked to hear the results of Tuesday's race, which Jan Tkach won by receiving 10,053 votes and Christina Raftery receiving 7,701.

Tkach, a Republican, will succeed retiring recorder Karen Fries, a Democrat.

Raftery, a Democrat, had not heard the results when a reporter called to break the news. "Oh my God," a shocked Raftery said. "I'm flabbergasted. I have no words really to say."

A story about this race, including comments from both candidates, was published in Wednesday's Reflector.
