I have a penchant for close elections.
Having been through this process before, I know the importance of making sure every voice is heard, and every vote is counted. I believe we will win. Our campaign continues to wait for the results from local election officials.
The people of Illinois cast 3.6 million votes in this election. As of right now, there is a difference of less than one vote per precinct. We must allow election authorities to do their job as we wait for official results, which are then certified by the State Board of Elections.
In addition to the ballots cast in the precincts, absentee and military ballots remain to be counted, and I believe we will win.”
