by on December 29th, 2004


TOLEDO, Ohio Dec 29, 2004 — Election officials have finished the presidential recount in Ohio, with the final tally shaving about 300 votes off President Bush’s six-figure margin of victory in the state that gave him a second term.

The recount shows Bush winning Ohio by 118,457 votes over John Kerry, according to unofficial results provided Tuesday to The Associated Press by the 88 counties. Lucas County, home to Toledo, was the last to finish counting.

The state had earlier declared Bush the winner by 118,775 votes and plans to adjust its totals to reflect the recount later this week.
