JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Republican businessman Donald Trump and former Democratic Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been certified as the winners of Missouri’s presidential primaries.

The results of the March 15 primaries were made official Tuesday. But the losing candidates still have seven days to request a recount.

Trump led Texas Sen. Ted Cruz by 1,965 votes out of more than 939,000 cast in the Republican primary.

Clinton led Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by 1,574 votes out of more than 629,000 cast in the Democratic primary.

Under Missouri law, candidates who lose by less than one-half of a percentage point can request a recount at state expense.

Sanders previously said he won’t do so.

The Associated Press has not declared Trump the winner because Cruz has not ruled out a recount.
