Campaign Update—Orentlicher for Congress

The recount has been underway for two weeks now, and we have been steadily chipping away at our ballot shortfall. With 9 counties behind us, we expect two more weeks of counting in the remaining 10 counties, which accounted for more than 60 percent of the total vote.
 
To this point, we’re finding errors at a sufficient rate to ultimately turn the race around, and we’ll have a better sense of things next week. We resume counting on Monday in Evansville (Vanderburgh County), which had 23 percent of the overall vote in the primary.
 
We’re grateful for the many hours of hard work by our awesome recount volunteers and by the dedicated auditors from the Indiana State Board of Accounts who are conducting the recount.
 
And thank you so much for your support and patience too.  We’ll continue to keep you posted as the process unfolds.
