(Fargo, ND) -- A North Dakota Senate candidate says hundreds of mailers weren't delivered until two days after the election.

Republican Curtis Olafson was defeated in Fargo's new District 10 by just 38 votes to Democratic challenger Ryan Braunberger. He says the mailers might have been the difference in the election.

Olafson says the mailers didn't make it to the Prairiewood Post Office to be delivered until November 10th.

The branch manager has said the matter is under investigation.
