Congressional Race Results Still Uncertain One Week After Midterms

HeadlineNov 14, 2018

More than one week after the midterm elections, results from a handful of races are trickling in while others remain undecided. California Republican incumbent Congressmember Jeff Denham was unseated by Democrat Josh Harder as Democrats continue to increase their gains in the House. Two congressional races in Orange County, California, are still too close to call, with less than 1,000 votes separating the candidates.

In Maine, Republican Congressmember Bruce Poliquin has filed a federal lawsuit hoping to block the first ranked-choice voting tabulation in a federal race. Maine voted to implement ranked-choice voting in a 2016 ballot measure. Unofficial tallies have Poliquin with a narrow lead over Democratic challenger Jared Golden.

In Georgia, Democrat Carolyn Bourdeaux has said she will ask for a recount as provisional ballots are still being counted in the congressional race where she is trailing Republican incumbent Rob Woodall by less than 1,000 votes.
