A STATE RECOUNT SHOWED REPUBLICAN MARIANNETTE MILLER-MEEKS WON BY SIX VOTES OVER DEMOCRAT RITA HART.

THE HART CAMPAIGN HAS CHALLENGED THE RESULT, ALLEGING 22 BALLOTS WERN’T COUNTED. HART DID NOT TAKE THE MATTER TO COURT, INSTEAD CHOOSING TO HAVE THE DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY HOUSE REVIEW THE DECISION.

REPUBLICANS CLAIM DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO STEAL THE SEAT.

PELOSI SAYS SHE’S FOLLOWING A FAIR AND LEGAL PROCESS FOR REVIEWING A CONTESTED ELECTION.

SHE SAYS IF SHE WANTED TO BE UNFAIR, SHE WOULDN’T HAVE SEATED MILLER-MEEKS.

NO DECISION IS EXPECTED MONDAY.
