MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Thirteen more ballots were thrown out in the 23rd Circuit judicial primary Wednesday, leaving David Camilletti 25 votes behind Gray Silver III.
Eleven of the eliminated ballots were cast for Silver and two for Camilletti, so nine votes were cut from Silver's lead.
"I'm happy with that right now," Camilletti said.
The Berkeley County Commissioners have been presiding over a hearing that lasted all day Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The commissioners will meet with Silver, Camilletti and their attorneys again today and expect to review the final eight of Berkeley County's 46 precincts.
Camilletti and Silver are battling for the Democratic nomination. There has been a canvass and a recount since the May 9 primary.
