Senate District 15 Republican candidate John Alexander looks to have won his race over Democrat Tom Bradshaw, but the margin is just under 1,000 votes. That’s small enough to allow Bradshaw to push for a recount. He reportedly has until 5 pm Monday to make the formal request.

If Alexander’s lead is deemed final, or holds in the wake of a recount, he will be the 34th Republican in the North Carolina Senate out of 50 seats.
