LeRoy E. Myers Jr.'s narrow lead over Maryland House Speaker Casper R. Taylor Jr. in the District 1C delegate race did not change Friday when a handful of remaining ballots were counted.
Myers, a Republican new to politics, remained 71 votes ahead of Taylor, a Democrat who has served in the legislature for 28 years and as House speaker for nine years. Myers is ahead 6,651 to 5,580.
The district spans parts of Washington and Allegany counties.
Taylor has said he will ask for a recount. On Thursday, an Anne Arundel County circuit judge ruled Taylor must post a $10,000 bond in advance of the recount.
