Jim Oberweis issues statement on discovery recount
Sugar Grove, IL – Jim Oberweis, candidate for Congress in the 14th District, is issuing the following statement on the discovery recount his campaign has formally launched.
“Today [Dec. 3] my campaign has formally initiated the process to begin a discovery recount. We are seeking a discovery recount in each of the seven counties within the 14th Congressional District.
“A discovery recount does not change a single vote, but it does allow us to see if the outcome might change with a full recount.
“Election law provides campaigns the ability to request a discovery recount in close elections. As we have said for the last few weeks, we would be seeking a discovery recount and the first of these recounts has been formally filed in DuPage County.
“We will be filing paperwork in the other counties in the coming days.”Jim Oberweis campaign statement
