The Nation

March 13, 1985

The House task force reviewing the nation's longest-running congressional election decided to recount all 233,500 ballots in the 8th Congressional District in southern Indiana. Since Jan. 3, the House has held vacant the district's seat, pending a report on whether Republican Rick McIntyre or one-term Democrat Frank McCloskey won the race. The House twice has refused to provisionally seat McIntyre, who holds the state certificate of election and was the winner of a state recount.
