Democrat Ben McAdams slightly widened his lead over Republican Mia Love in Utah’s 4th Congressional District on Thursday.
New vote totals released Thursday afternoon gave McAdams a 1,002 vote lead over Mia Love. However, that lead is tenuous as heavily Republican Utah County is set to update their election results on Friday.
Election forecast website FiveThirtyEight.com moved the race from “Lean D” to “Lean R” on Thursday after the new vote totals, noting Love’s better than expected performance in picking up votes from late ballots, which usually favor Democrats.
Going to Lean R in UT-4 as Love continues to outperform her Election Day vote in late-counted ballots. Opposite of most districts where the late vote has been more Democratic.
