Larsen Statement on Race for 2nd Congressional District
Everett, WA - Rick Larsen released the following statement today on the race for the 2nd Congressional District:
“The race for the 2nd Congressional District continues to be close.
“There are still thousands of votes to be counted over the next few days. However, recent vote counts show a clear trend over the last three days in my favor. Since election night when I was behind by 1,452 votes, we have seen a 3,477 vote swing as of 3:20pm today.
“I attribute this turnaround to the hundreds of volunteers in the last two weeks of the campaign who spent countless hours calling, or walking the many neighborhoods of this district encouraging people to vote.
“As this is Washington state, there is natural speculation about a possible recount. If a recount process is needed, I want to assure everyone that we are building the infrastructure for it as well.
“But a recount is only speculation at this point. Now, we need to make sure every vote is counted."
Larsen currently has 50.46% of the total vote. Approximately 83,000 ballots remain to be counted in the 2nd Congressional District. Larsen is available for interview upon request.
