Danielson declared winner in SD 10
A recount of votes in Iowa Senate District 10 has given incumbent Democrat Jeff Danielson a 22-vote win over Republican challenger Walt Rogers.
On election night, Rogers was up by 90 votes, but Danielson pulled ahead by 14 votes after the official canvass of votes and an administrative recount of two precincts. Rogers then filed for a district-wide recount.
The Democrats now officially hold a 32-18 advantage in the state Senate.
