In the Palm Beach County House of Representatives race runoff, Republican Mike Caruso is leading over Democrat Jim Bonfiglio.

Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections, Susan Bucher, says they got the results to the state with only one second to spare.

Now the candidates who are trailing will have to decide whether to go to court to appeal the vote count, or whether to concede.
