Singh files for recounts in four counties

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Hirsh Singh filed civil suits seeking recounts in at least four counties Monday.

Singh — who trails rival candidate Rik Mehta by roughly 8,000 votes, a two-point gap — filed for recounts in Camden, Burlington, Morris and Passaic Counties.

All four counties are ones where Mehta had support from Republican organizations, though Morris County Republicans do not employ an organizational line.

Mehta leads over Singh in those counties totals a little more than 13,000 votes. The New Jersey Globe called the race for Mehta on July 10.

Singh is representing himself.
