MT. HOLLY, N.J. — Trailing challenger Andy Kim after the initial tabulation of vote-by-mail ballots, Republican incumbent Tom MacArthur said he’s not making any decisions until the provisional ballot count is completed.
“This has been a hard fought campaign and like Andy Kim, I’m ready to see it come to an end. I have always said that I will be guided by the voters of the district and there are nearly 7,000 more of them who haven’t been heard from yet. We must ensure that their votes – and all votes – are counted in a transparent way that protects the integrity of this election.”
Kim held a rally on Wednesday night to declare victory. He led by 2,622 votes.
