Former Bridgewater Associates Chief Executive David McCormick wants a Pennsylvania court to order a hand recount in a dozen counties in his too-close-to-call Republican Senate primary with celebrity physician Mehmet Oz as the U.S. Supreme Court and the commonwealth’s highest court dealt blows to his bid to get certain mail-in ballots counted.

Counties must begin an automatic recount of the race by Wednesday, but McCormick is asking for a hand recount in 12 counties where his campaign still has questions about the results, including ones in which the votes reported by the county don’t match what the state has reported, a senior McCormick campaign official said Tuesday on a call with reporters.
