Vermont Progressive primary to see recount

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- A recount is under way in the Vermont Progressive Party's primary for governor.

Write-in candidate Annette Smith asked for the recount after losing in earlier counting to Progressive Party Chairwoman Martha Abbott by one vote. The party decided earlier this year not to run a candidate for governor, so Abbott withdrew after her apparent victory.

A Smith victory in the recount could upset that plan.

County clerks are sorting through the ballots of Democrats, Republicans and Progressives, pulling out the Progressive ones and then recounting those to see if Abbott or Smith won the primary.

Officials say there's a good chance they'll have results by the end of the day Thursday.
