The election for State House district 15 is still too close to call Friday morning.
What is known is that incumbent Rick Staples is out as the district’s representative.
The race has come down to former KUB Commissioner Sam McKenzie and progressive Democrat Matthew park. McKenzie leads Park by 23 votes.
Those results do not include provisional votes which won’t be counted until next week by the Knox County Election Commission. Over 200 votes still remain in the balance.
Both Park’s and McKenzie’s campaigns are holding out to see the results after the provisional votes are counted.
