Press Release

Today, Representative Cindy Axne (IA-03) issued the following statement on the petition filed by Rita Hart to the Committee on House Administration concerning the election in Iowa’s Second Congressional District:

“First and foremost, it is clear that no Iowan should ever be told again that their vote won’t potentially make the difference in the outcome of an election. We’ve seen the margin of this race continue to tighten, and both candidates acknowledge that there are still votes left to be counted in what has become one of the closest federal elections of the past century.

It is critical that every Iowan’s voice is heard in this election – and to that end, Rita Hart has Constitutional and legal grounds to pursue that goal at the federal level.

I support a transparent process that ensures every properly-cast vote in this contest is counted. It is the only way to give Iowa voters full faith and confidence in the outcome of this historically-close election.”
