A Cal­i­for­nia state sen­a­tor who nar­rowly lost her re-elec­tion bid is re­quest­ing a par­tial re­count of bal­lots in Orange County, county elec­tions chief Neal Kel­ley an­nounced Thurs­day. For­mer Re­pub­li­can Sen. Janet Nguyen re­quested the re­count on Tues­day, a day af­ter Demo­crat Tom Um­berg was sworn in to re­place her.

A voter in Se­nate Dis­trict 34, on be­half of Nguyen, orig­i­nally re­quested a com­plete re­count of votes in Orange County, which com­prises the vast ma­jor­ity of the dis­trict. Kel­ley said the re­quest was later scaled back to 12 precincts in Santa Ana.
