The only countywide office that is not yet held by a republican is the Wichita County tax assessor-collector.

Yesterday's race was close between incumbent Lou Murdock and her republican challenger Tommy Smyth.

But Smyth received 198 more votes than Murdock.

Although Wichita County democratic party officials say a recount is automatic it won't be done until all ballots have been counted.

They say mail-in ballots are still arriving to be counted along with about 90 provisional ballots.

And democratic officials say Lou Murdock will not concede until all ballots are counted.
