Democrat Joe Courtney's lead in the 2nd Congressional District dropped to 66 votes Monday after officials in Lebanon discovered a math error that had given him 100 extra votes over Republican U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, an election official said.
"It was human error," said Lebanon election moderator John Bendoraitis. "It was strictly misreading one number on one machine."
Bendoraitis said the error happened when an official on election night read the vote total on one of six machines as 363 votes for Courtney when it should have been 263.
Hang on to your hats, folks, this one is still not over.
