Jim Pratts narrow runoff win over GOP rival Nancy Harrelson in the 6th Congressional District was upheld Monday after the State Election Commission recounted the votes.
Pratt, a St. Matthews businessman, ended up with an unofficial 13,690 votes to 13,578 for Harrelson a week ago. A recount was required because the margin was within 1 percent.
The 15 counties in the 6th District held that recount Monday morning, and Pratts final tally changed by only one vote, giving him 13,689, or 50.2 percent.
The total for Harrelson, a Marion County resident who also ran for the seat two years ago, remained the same.
Once the State Election Commission certifies that result, as its expected to do today, Pratt will become the Republican nominee on the fall ballot, challenging Democratic House Majority Whip James Clyburn.
