In the second of two election recounts requested post- June 10th primary (Ralph Tucker was announced as the winner of House District 50 yesterday), incumbent State Senator John L. Tuttle led challenger Representative Andrea M. Boland by a margin of 841 votes to 821 votes in the Senate District 33 Democratic primary. SD 33 formerly SD 3, was redistricted and now contains the towns of Cornish, Parsonfield, Limerick, Newfield, Waterboro, Shapleigh and Sanford. Sanford, which previously included seven wards, is now divided up into three precincts.
