With the recount of all 24 counties in Iowa's 2nd Congressional District complete, Mariannette Miller-Meeks will be the congresswoman-elect once the State Canvass Board certifies the results this afternoon.

A six-vote margin of victory out of almost 400,000 votes cast.

Anytime someone says your vote doesn’t matter here is your retort

Update: IF the unofficial recount vote pick-ups by Rita Hart holds, depending on what happens in Scott County, Miller-Meeks could win by one vote, they could tie, or Hart could win by three. Hart unofficially picked up anywhere from 26 to 30 votes in Scott County. However, the Miller-Meeks campaign said there is a "new significant discrepancy" in Scott County, so who knows? #ia02 #iapolitics

Predictions?

This is significant. Huge First Amendment ramifications in this case.

Guys... can we drop the Dominion voting machine conspiracy already? Georgia's hand recount would have picked up on problems, but it hasn't.

Also, it's inevitable that the future of voting is more automated and more virtual. We should insist on integrity, but the best way to do that is to embrace technology and leverage it toward security and fairness, not to insist on going back to the Pony Express.

My response to Gov. Kim Reynolds' order for increased #COVID19 mitigation measures that, including a mask mandate and gathering restrictions. This probably won't make either the pro-mandate or "it's a hoax" camp happy. Oh well. #iagov #iapolitics

This is in response to Iowa’s hospitals being almost at capacity, not so much with beds, but staffing has been an issue. One in four patients in Iowa hospitals have the coronavirus. #COVID19 #iagov #iapolitics

Yes. We are feeling the staffing shortages in the health care system and it’s rapidly getting worse.

Yeah, my daughter works at Allen Hospital in Waterloo, she's talked about this. I get it, but I'll never support a mandate, ever. I just wished people took it a little more seriously.

@shanevanderhart My frustration is that a mandate shouldn’t even have to be considered. I don’t get why people consider it a point of pride not to do the rights things.

Gov. Kim Reynolds will address Iowans about #COVID19 and the state’s response at 6:05 pm on Monday evening. #iagov #iapolitics
