The Democratic race for the state House seat in District 121 apparently is over.
Hunter Dawkins said he won’t pursue his challenge after the Democratic Executive Committee refused to accept it. Dawkins said his only recourse would be to take his case to Circuit Court, a move that he and his attorney estimated would cost $10,000.
Dawkins lost the Democratic Party by one vote to Brian Pearse. The race ended in a 323-323 tie before affadavit ballots were counted. After those were counted, Pearse led 327-326.
