Un-official election result numbers place House Speaker Nick Mattiello as the winner of the hotly contested District 15 seat by 65 votes.
The results came in at the Board of Elections Thursday after hours were spent going through mail in ballots. Mattiello's opponent, Steven Frias is not conceding and is requesting a recount.
The Speaker held a caucus in Cranston less than an hour after those results came in. He was re-elected unanimously as Speaker during that meeting.
The un-official results came just two days after initial numbers placed the Speaker behind opponent Frias by 147 votes.
