Former Gov. Jon Huntsman slightly closed the gap with Lt. Governor Spencer Cox to just over 9,100 votes on Monday, but Cox was projected as the winner by multiple organizations.
Elections officials added about 27,000 new ballots to the totals from last week. The new votes brought the gap between Cox and Huntsman to 1.8 percentage points. It’s still unclear how many ballots remain to be counted after Monday’s update.
