Recount ends with Miller-Meeks leading in 2nd Congressional District race


The recount of Iowa's 2nd Congressional District is complete, and Republican Mariannette-Miller Meeks still leads Democrat Rita Hart.

Clinton County's recount ended the counting in the 24-county district, with Miller-Meeks now leading Hart by just six votes.

It's the closest federal race in the country.

The vote will go to a state canvassing board to be certified on Monday, which would make Miller-Meeks the official winner.

The Hart campaign is expected to file a legal challenge.
