CLINTON COUNTY, Iowa
The Clinton County auditor confirmed with KCCI on Saturday afternoon that (R) Mariannette Miller-Meeks received an additional two votes from their recount. This results in Miller-Meeks being six votes ahead of (D) Rita Hart in Iowa's second congressional district.

Miller-Meeks released the following statement: "While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to be certified as the winner by the state's Executive Council on Monday. It is an honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hard working, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf."

All three members of the committee have signed off on the results in Clinton County. Clinton County was the final county to perform a recount for Hart and Miller-Meeks' race. Clinton County is Hart's home county.

More than 300,000 Iowans cast their ballots in this race. The Iowa canvassing board is expected to meet Monday to certify the results of the race.

Snip


Damn

SIX votes

I can now give a final tally for the House

222-213 Democratic majority.

5 defections and we cannot pass things (provided all the Rethugs hold together)

Net minus 19 from the 241 we had after 2018.

6. Every mouth breathing idiot crawled out from under every rock

to vote for their Dear Orange Leader.

Most Republicans barely campaigned and none of the ones in my area even answered a single question in any forum.

13. Even Axne had a really close race. She is the only Dem left at high level there

The Rethugs hold the governorship, the state Senate and state House, the other 3 US House seats and both Senate seats. Ugh.

4. 222-213! Yieks!

Had no idea itd be that close. Normally I hate constant campaigning, but we may need to start now for 2022 at least in the house.

9. We need a good 50 state groundgame.

That's where it's at.

Stacey Abrams has proved this.
