Wasinger Wins After Recount in Kansas House Race

“Every vote counts” rang true for several Kansas House candidates this year with a number of vote spreads coming in at less than 100 votes. Rep. Eber Phelps (D-Hays) requested a hand recount of votes in the House District 111 election against challenger Barbara Wasinger (R-Hays). After canvassing was completed, the vote total showed Wasinger at 4,342 and Phelps at 4,310. Both Phelps and Wasinger are long-time credit union supporters. Phelps has been a credit union member for decades. Wasinger’s husband has served 10 years on Golden Plains Credit Union’s supervisory committee.  

The recount held up the initial results, and Wasinger will take the House District 11 seat in January.
