McDowell not ready to concede defeatMARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) –  Democrat challenger Gary McDowell appears to not be ready to concede defeat to incumbent Republican Dan Benishek in the race for the 1st Congressional District.

McDowell finished 2297 votes behind Benishek and in a statement released this afternoon, McDowell and his campaign team are working together to ensure that all absentee, provisional and military ballots are accounted for as the canvassing boards in each county begin to meet this afternoon.

The campaign is looking to resolve discrepancies between media-reported numbers and tallying errors in some counties. McDowell says it will only be fair to all who supported and worked for his campaign to let the process continue and make sure that all absentee and provisional ballots are counted.

More information will be released as soon as it is available.
