Press Release

Washington, DC – Committee on House Administration Ranking Member Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) released this statement after the committee received Congresswoman Miller-Meeks’ (R-Iowa) motion to dismiss the complaint filed by Democrats to overturn the election results in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District.
“The Committee on House Administration should immediately dismiss Hart’s request to overturn the people of Iowa’s Second District. It’s clear Hart does not have a case. Congresswoman Miller-Meeks’ dismissal clearly lays out why the committee should drop this complaint. All ballots in this race were regularly adjudicated through Iowa’s bipartisan and transparent recount process. In addition to this process, there was more than enough time for Iowa courts to review these votes, but Hart decided against the impartial court process and instead, has asked for House Democrats to use a partisan process to overturn a state-certified election. Rita Hart should have exhausted all state remedies before filing a federal contest. If Democrats are serious about unifying this country, overturning this election would do the exact opposite.”
