Kazen/Salinas Recount Tomorrow

Matt Flores has the story over at the Express-News based blog "Strange Bedfellows", but the short story is, Oscar Kazen requested a recount and it is happening tomorrow.

The long story is:
Kazen, who will complete his first term as judge at the end of this year, was stunned by Salinas, a 34-year-old family and criminal law attorney, in her first run for office.

The vote margin easily was the slimmest of all Bexar County races in the March 7 primary. Kazen had a razor-thin lead over Salinas in election day polling, but Salinas was able to inch ahead after mail-in ballots arrived from military personnel overseas in the ensuing days.

Elections Administrator Jacque Callanen said the recount would begin at 10 a.m., and estimated that it would take about a half-day to recount the roughly 1,700 mail-in ballots. It was uncertain whether the recount would include electronic tallies, which accounted for the overwhelming majority of the nearly 35,000 votes cast in the election.

I heard that the re-count didn't result in Oscar's favor. Is there more news about this?

The rumor from Larry Stalling's blog is that Kazen has lost by 7 votes, but I can't confirm that it this point.

I will get a full report as soon as I have two sources.
