Colton Skorupan remains the winner of the Republican primary for state representative in Hillsborough House District 45 following a recount on Thursday.

Skorupan faced Jack Flanagan, a former state representative, in the primary Sept. 13, with a difference of only 21 votes in the initial count. Hillsborough District 45 consists of Mason, Brookline, Greenville and Hollis. The recount resulted in an slightly larger victory for Skorupan, with the new tally being 935-909, a 26-vote victory, according to the New Hampshire Secretary of State’s website.

Flanagan gained a single vote in Brookline and a single vote in Hollis during the recount. Skorupan gained six votes in Hollis and one vote in Mason in the recount. Greenville votes were unchanged from the initial count.

The recount was one of a total of 10 recounts the state performed on Thursday. No recounts resulted in a change of winners.

In the general election, Skorupan will face Democratic candidate Karen E. Calabro, who ran unopposed in the primary.
