Six weeks after Election Day, one House race remains in dispute. In Florida's 13th District, which Republican Katherine Harris vacated to run for the Senate, Republican Vern Buchanan was certified the winner by a narrow 369-vote margin.

But Democrat Christine Jennings is challenging the results, both in court and in the House, which will soon be in Democratic hands.

Questions have been raised over the ballots of some 18,000 voters who apparently showed up at the polls but failed to vote for Congress.

In court Wednesday, Jennings asked a judge to order the release of the software and codes of the touch-screen voting machines that Democrats believe malfunctioned on Election Day.
