FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – No other candidates have requested a review of Kentucky’s primary election results.

Tuesday was the last day candidates could ask the secretary of state to review the voting machines and absentee ballots in all of Kentucky’s 120 counties. A competitive Republican primary yielded two such challenges, one for governor and the other for agriculture commissioner.

Matt Bevin leads James Comer by 83 votes in a race for the Republican nomination for governor that was too close to call on election night. Comer has not conceded and asked for a review the next day.

State Rep. Richard Heath asked for a review after losing to fellow state Rep. Ryan Quarles in the state agriculture commissioner’s race by more than 1,400 votes.

The review is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Thursday.
