U.S. Congressman Dan Benishek and News Director Walt Lindala
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) - U.S. Congressman Dan Benishek, fresh off of what appears to be a win in his bid for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives, joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike this morning to talk about it.
The Congressman gave his opinion on the efforts by his challenger, Democrat Gary McDowell, to not publicly concede the race until all votes in the district are certified. Benishek defeated McDowell on election day by 2297 votes.
McDowell’s campaign is calling for county canvassers to certify all votes before conceding the race.
Congressman Benishek commented on the statistics that say he beat out McDowell two years ago by 11-percent and what it means that he beat him this time around by only 6/10ths of a percent.
The Congressman thanked the voters in the district who voted for him and he said his focus is now on moving ahead to implement the policies and reforms he discussed during the campaign.
