I earlier blogged about the close Vermont Democratic gubernatorial primary here and here.  Now the question is whether there will be a recount, as asked here by the Times Argus.  The current AP totals are:

Peter Shumlin  18,192  25%

Doug Racine       18,000   25%

Deb Markowitz      17,503   24%

Matt Dunne       15,242   21%

Susan Bartlett    3,774     5%

I hope someone like Nate Silver at 538 will take the time to do a statistical analysis to determine the likelihood of a new leader if their is a recount.  The expectation is that the VT Sec of State will announce official totals next week, and canadidates have 10 days from election day to request a recount.
