Nancy Pelosi thought that she had seen the worst of the election results.
But she got even more bad news.
This nail-biting election is Nancy Pelosi’s worst nightmare.
Nancy Pelosi thought that there was going to be a blue wave in the election that would help gain her a larger majority in the House.
Instead, Pelosi lost seats that she thought were safely Democratic.
There were 27 congressional races that the Cook Political Report rated as toss-up elections.
Of those 27 races, Republicans won 25 of them and two races are coming down to a handful of votes.
Republican House candidate Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Iowa’s second congressional district has a 6-vote lead over Democrat Rita Hart.
They both attended the House freshman orientation which is typical when races are so close.
A recount of votes narrowed Miller-Meeks’ lead but was not enough to change the outcome of the election.
It was the Democratic candidate who called for a recount and Miller-Meeks welcomed the extra scrutiny.
And Hart is looking at taking additional measures and may challenge the certification of the vote.
“When we began this recount Rita Hart was down by 47 votes,” said a Hart campaign spokesperson. “As more ballots have been counted, the margin has narrowed dramatically and is now down to a mere 6 votes — making this the closest Congressional race in recent history, and one of the very closest in the last hundred years.”
“Unfortunately, as this process continues, the Miller-Meeks campaign has sought to keep legitimate votes from being counted — pushing to disqualify and limit the number of Iowans whose votes are counted,” the campaign spokesperson added. “We will closely review what the county and state boards do on Monday with an eye toward making sure all Iowa voices are fully and fairly heard.”
“It is the 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.”
The Democrats are complete hypocrites when it comes to recounts.
They are perfectly happy to do recounts and lawsuits when they think that it will benefit them yet accuse Donald Trump of ending our democracy when he works through legal channels to make sure the election was fair.
If Trump had won the election there would have been violence on the streets and the left would have been okay with that.
America’s democracy is not undermined by making sure that American elections are free from fraud.
The Democrats just don’t want to accept any election results where they lose.
