Look Who's Leading Now as Vote Count Drags On
After the latest tally, U.S. Rep. Mia Love, 42, held a razor-thin 419-vote lead over Democratic challenger and Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams for the state’s 4th Congressional District, FOX13 Utah reported.
The two-term incumbent had previously trailed McAdams early Friday afternoon by 1,169 votes before the release of updated numbers from Utah County, the station reported.
McAdam’s campaign has called the Utah County results “unsurprising,” saying they track with earlier voter trends.
“We’re optimistic that when final numbers are reported Monday, Ben McAdams will again be winning,” McAdams’ campaign manager, Andrew Roberts, told the Salt Lake Tribune.
McAdams, so confident of victory, spent the past week in Washington attending House orientation meetings.
