SITKA, Alaska - Republican state Rep. Bill Thomas says he's likely to ask for a recount in the election race that ended with him behind by 34 votes to Democrat Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins of Sitka.

Thomas is a Haines Republican. He tells the Sitka Sentinel ( he has delayed making a decision because of the death of a friend.

Thomas has until the end of Wednesday decide.

Division of Elections Director Gale Fenumiai on Friday certified Kreiss-Tomkins as the winner of House District 34. The tally was 4,125 votes for Kreiss-Tomkins and 4,091 for Thomas.

Fenumiai says it there's a recount, it likely would take place Friday or Monday.

She says it's been her experience that the count may change by up to three or four votes but not double digits.
