Yesterday, we told you that incumbent Democrat Ed Trimmer retained his set in the Kansas House. Now however, comes word that was actually not the case. Although the initial reports did indeed say that Trimmer beat Republican Cheryl Helmer, after more votes were counted, and all were accounted for, Helmer actually unseated Trimmer in a down-to-the-wire race by only about 125 votes. That too however, is unofficial until validated. Helmer ended up with 51 percent, or 3,586 votes. Trimmer had 49 percent, or 3,461 votes. The change came after ballots in Sumner County had to be hand counted due to a machine malfunction.
