Maxine Mosley was trailing her Republican opponent Larry Gagne in the Hillsborough 16 House District race last week by 23 votes.
But the machine recount gave the win to Mosley the Democrat.
Shocker in Manchester’s Ward 6 @NHHouseofReps race — after she congratulated Gagne, there was still counting left & it turns out Maxine Mosley won by a single vote. A flip for the Democrats. #NHPolitics #WMUR

Following a recount, Democrat Maxine Mosley has now defeated Republican Larry Gagne in the Hillsborough 16 House District, consisting of Manchester’s Ward 6, by a final total of 1799 to 1798.
Heading into Monday, Mosley trailed Gagne, 1797 to 1820.
On Monday evening, Mosley said she was overwhelmed by the result, and was told by Secretary of State representatives that a swing of more than nine votes is rare, so this result was historic.
“I did not really anticipate that I could pull it off, but I wanted to use the process of recount to make sure that everyone that supported me knew I was doing everything in my power to have the most verifiable vote at the end,” she said. “I will take today as a win with great, great gratitude.
“It’s very unusual, especially in Manchester with the machines we have to make up 24 votes, we were winning by 23. I don’t know what happened,” said Gagne.
