Campaign Update—Orentlicher for Congress

Our pre-recount inspection begins this Thursday, July 7, in Brazil with a review of the Clay County voting records. We’ll also be in Newport and Terre Haute later that day for a review of the Vermillion and Vigo County voting records. By taking a look at the voting records before the recount, we can speed up the recount process.

After our pre-recount inspection in the three counties, we can begin the actual recount in all nineteen counties. That will probably start on either Friday, July 8, or Monday, July 11. And once we get into the counting, we’ll have a better sense of how long the entire process will take. Most likely, we’ll know by Friday, July 22, or Friday, July 29, how the recount will change the vote totals.

In the meantime, we’ve been greeting voters and receiving warm welcomes on the campaign trail. We were in Martin County this past Saturday afternoon for the Shoals Catfish Festival. Later that afternoon, we were in Spencer County for the Abraham Lincoln Freedom Festival. After walking in the parade through downtown Rockport, we enjoyed the Festival's live music.

Our holiday weekend campaign activities continued yesterday in Greene County, where we walked in the Linton Freedom Festival Parade, Indiana’s largest Independence Day parade.  We then moved onto Knox County, where we walked in Vincennes’ annual 4th of July parade.

Thank you very much for your support. We hope to share more good news soon.
