Session Notes: Jorgen Jensen's margin of victory over S.C. Bowman was 117 votes. He was sworn in and served. S.C. Bowman contested the seat due to his name being listed on some ballots as S. Bowman rather than S.C. Bowman. The S. Bowman votes had not been added to his total. After a recount that included these votes, Bowman was declared the winner by 52 votes.
