Losing by only two votes, incumbent state representative Geraldo Alicea plans to seek a recount to keep his State House seat.

At the same time, Alicea's opponent for the 6th Worcester District seat, Republican Peter Durant of Spencer, said he remains "cautiously optimistic," he would prevail.

Officially, Durant defeated Alicea, a Charlton Democrat with 6,583 votes to Alicea's 6,581 in the Tuesday, Nov. 2 election.

Also, Kevin Kuros unseated state Rep. Paul Kujawski, D-Webster, for the 8th Worcester District seat.

By press time Tuesday night, the race for the Worcester and Norfolk District had not yet been officially called, but incumbent Richard Moore, D-Uxbridge was leading his Republican challenger Kim Roy, of Sutton.

State Rep. Anne Gobi, D-Spencer, handily defeated her Republican challenger, Rodney Josephson, of Barre, with a 65-percent majority.

Republican Daniel Dubrule lost his bid to unseat State Sen. Stephen Brewer, D-Barre from his seat, which covers Worcester, Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin counties.

Also, as of late Monday night, Republican Lewis Evangelidis was leading his two opponents, Democrat Thomas Foley and Independent Keith Nicholas, but the race had not been officially called.
