Acting Secretary of State Leigh Chapman announced today the mandatory state recount confirmed Mehmet Oz as the winner of the U.S. Senate Republican race.
Oz received 419,999 votes – 951 more than Dave McCormick, whose vote total was 419,048.
“I commend all county election workers and volunteers for their hard work and dedication over the past few weeks,” Chapman said. “They started handling millions of ballots from the May 17 primary, then ensured a smooth recount of those ballots while millions of people eagerly awaited the results.”
The recount results:
- Mehmet C. Oz – 419,999 (31.1%)
- David McCormick – 419,048 (31.0%)
- Kathy J. Barnette – 331,864 (24.6%)
- Carla Sands – 73,316 (5.4%)
- Jeff Bartos – 66,619 (4.9%)
- Sean Gale – 20,251 (1.5%)
- George Bochetto – 14,480 (1.1%)
“With the statewide recount officially concluded, it’s time to focus on how high the stakes are in November. I look forward to continuing my campaign across our great Commonwealth to earn the support of Pennsylvanians that want someone who will stand up to the liberal Biden-Fetterman agenda leading to higher gas prices, record inflation, and unprecedented levels of violent crime,” said Oz.
