TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Former NFL player Peter Boulware is trailing by 403 votes in his first political race, but may get a recount.
The Florida State alum is in one of two state House races close enough to qualify for automatic machine recounts.
Boulware, a Republican, is trailing Democrat Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda for an open seat. Both are from Tallahassee.
Incumbent Democrat Debbie Boyd of Newberry is clinging to a 42-vote lead over Republican Elizabeth Porter for a seat covering six north Florida counties.
State law requires a recount if the margin is one-half of a percent or less.
Secretary of State Kurt Browning said Wednesday the recount decisions wouldn't be made until Saturday. Some ballots were still being counted in the Boyd-Porter race.
