The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that incumbent Republican Mia Love has pulled ahead in her race against Democratic challenger and Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams.
Love is now up by 419 votes, so if she prevails, her seat is one that Republicans can take back from the flipped seat. The final vote count will come in on Monday and McAdams’ team remains confident they will win when all is said and done.
“We’re optimistic that when final numbers are reported Monday, Ben McAdams will again be winning,” Roberts said.
Love sued on Wednesday to stop the vote count in order to “allow her campaign the ability to challenge the verification of ballot signatures,” but a judge dismissed the suit saying it had no merits.
