Christine Jones the former chief counsel for Godaddy has lost her bid to become the Republican nominee for the US Congress by just 27 votes.
After the election it looked like Ms. Jones had won the election however in an email sent by Ms. Jones yesterday she announced she lost by 27 votes after a recount.
Here is the part of the email:
“On election night, results showed us locked in a tight race but still projected to win. Days after the election, as additional ballots were counted, one of my opponents crept up in his vote count until he was trailing me by just six votes.
Then suddenly, in the dead of the night, more ballots appeared putting him ahead by nine votes.
Our team was assertive asking a judge to allow the County Recorder to include an additional 330 votes in her count.
Unfortunately, only 18 of the 330 additional ballots were counted.
We then fell behind by 16 votes!
However, when an election is this close, state law requires an automatic recount by the Secretary of State. That recount took place Wednesday and the final results are in.
Unfortunately for our campaign, we did not prevail.
By 27 votes, my opponent, Andy Biggs, has won the Republican nomination, 25,244 to 25,217 votes.””
Bottom line, never let anyone tell you your vote doesn’t matter
Go out and vote.
