A hearing has been scheduled for Friday on Rep. Allen West's, R-Fla., request for a recount of all the ballots cast during early voting in St. Lucie County, the Palm Beach Post reports.
Democrat Patrick Murphy still holds a .58 percent lead over West after a partial recount of St. Lucie County votes narrowed the gap between the two -- his lead would need to be within a .5 percent margin in order to trigger an automatic recount, but West is refusing to concede. The Post:
