Jones for Congress Statement on Status of the Vote Count

(Gilbert, AZ) – Early Saturday morning, the Maricopa County Recorder released the status of the vote count for Arizona's 5th Congressional District. Jones for Congress General Consultant and spokesman, Brian Seitchik, released the following statement:

"The contest for the CD-5 Republican Congressional nomination has entered a new phase and is far from settled. Facing a nine-vote deficit out of a universe of more than 80,000 votes cast so far, Christine Jones is determined to do absolutely everything to ensure that the vote totals eventually reported are fair, accurate and consistent with the expressed will of the voters in CD-5. Christine is working with community leaders and the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office to review this process and further investigate the significant statistical anomalies that have arisen in this competitive contest; every vote count, up until the final tabulation, showed Christine winning.  We are committed to leaving no stone unturned in the recount and, in the end, we are confident that Christine Jones will be nominated to run in the General Election this November."
