Plenty of major races have been decided in the weeks following Election Day. And if there ever was a photo-finish, it’s this one.
After weeks of counting votes in Iowa for a seat in the House of Representatives, the race was finally decided.
And it went to a candidate who ran for it 3 times, previously. I guess the fourth time’s the charm?
You’ll never believe how close this race was:
The fourth time proved to be the charm for Mariannette Miller-Meeks, as the conservative from Iowa’s 2nd District will go to Congress after three losses — and by a margin of 6 votes out of more than 394,000 cast.
The recount of the nation’s closest House race came Saturday, as the last of 24 counties in the 2nd District to submit a final count did so.
If anyone’s ever told you one vote doesn’t matter, tell them about this election. Conservative Mariannette Miller-Meeks won a seat in Congress by just 6 votes.
Just six people decided this race, which gave Republicans another seat in the House. Imagine if those six people decided not to show up on Election Day?
Really makes you think, huh?
Major races have been dragged out for days and weeks since Election Day, with the presidency being the biggest (and longest). Funny how after 200 years of democracy, we suddenly had trouble counting ballots?
I guess it’s time every state followed Florida’s lead and invest in much, much better election tech?
This is further proof that Republicans dominated in the 2020 Election—and the Democrat’s blue wave yet again failed to appear.
Geez, they keep talking about this blue wave every election and it never shows. Do they even know what they’re talking about?
