Republican congressional candidate Mariannette Miller-Meeks leads Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes after a recount in Iowa’s 2nd District.

A state canvassing board is expected to meet Monday, the legal deadline, to certify the results of the race in which more than 394,400 votes were cast.

Miller-Meeks acknowledged in a statement that the race was “extraordinarily close,” but said she was proud of the outcome and looked forward to being certified as the winner.
