Lola Sheldon-Galloway in House District 22 in south Great Falls and Republican Fred Fleming in House District 51 in south-central Billings are the official winners in each race. In both races, the losing candidate has requested the recount and posted a non-refundable bond to pay for the recount. Billings Democrat Darryl Wilson, who lost to Fleming by a mere 17 votes, has posted bond to finance his recount, which is scheduled next Tuesday. The Montana Democratic Party has posted bond to pay for the recount for Great Falls Democrat Laura Devers, who lost to Sheldon-Galloway by just 14 votes. The recount is not yet scheduled.
