A statewide recount for a Commonwealth Court seat is over, and Doylestown lawyer Kathryn Boockvar is the winner in the Democratic primary. The Department of State announced Wednesday that Boockvar won by a little more than 2,000 votes out of 621,000 cast.
The results show Boockvar defeated Pittsburgh lawyer Barbara Behrend Ernsberger by nearly the same margin that was reported in unofficial results shortly after the primary.
The race was close enough that the state had to pay for a recount of all 67 counties. Ernsberger could have waived the recount, but choose not to.
Boockvar faces Republican nominee Anne Covey, a lawyer from New Hope, in the November general election.
