Counting goes on in unsettled NJ House race where Kim leads
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Officials say they’re continuing to count votes in an unsettled New Jersey House race where Democrat Andy Kim has a narrow lead over Republican Rep. Tom MacArthur.
Officials in Burlington and Ocean counties said that as of late morning they had around 6,700 provisional and mail-in ballots left to count.
They hadn’t provided an update as of Friday afternoon as to how many uncounted ballots remained or whether that work would continue over the weekend.
Kim is a former national security aide to Barack Obama. He led MacArthur by about 3,400 votes in unofficial results.
Kim has declared victory, but MacArthur has not conceded.
The Associated Press has not called the race.
The 3rd Congressional District stretches from the Philadelphia suburbs, across the Pinelands to the New Jersey shore.
