MEDIA RELEASE: Statement from Secretary Pate regarding Second Congressional District race


DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate releases the following statement regarding the Second Congressional District race. Iowa’s election results were officially certified by the State Canvassing Board on Monday:

“A bipartisan and transparent recount process in all 24 counties of the Second Congressional District confirmed Iowans elected Mariannette Miller-Meeks. Under Iowa law the deadline to contest the election is today. Iowans made their voices heard in record numbers, and in the event of a contested election they deserve to have the contest process decided by Iowa judges. The will of Iowa voters should not be overturned by partisan Washington, D.C. politicians.” – Paul Pate, Iowa Secretary of State
