Macon native Max Wood misses mark for recount in AG race

clewis@macon.comJuly 29, 2010 

Macon native Max Wood won’t get a chance to request a recount in his failed bid for the Republican nomination for state attorney general.

Wood, a former U.S. attorney, narrowly trailed second-place finisher Preston Smith by a margin of 1.1 percent (6,589 votes) after state election officials certified the vote Wednesday.

Wood had hoped he could gain enough ground with absentee ballots, which weren’t all fully counted until Wednesday, to come within the 1 percent margin necessary to request a recount.
