House Committee Takes Initial Step Toward Investigating 2nd Congressional District Race

A U.S. House Committee has taken it’s initial step toward investigating Iowa’s second congressional district race between Democrat Rita Hart and Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks. This past Friday the Committee met to establish procedures that they will use to consider elections contested under the Federal Contested Elections Act. In December, Hart filed a petition asking the U.S. House of Representatives to review the race and its recount, claiming 22 ballots that should have been counted were not. Miller-Meeks was declared the winner at that time by the slim margin of 6 votes.
