UTAH, Nov. 11, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Rep. Ben McAdams, congressman for Utah’s Fourth District, remains locked in a tight election race with challenger Burgess Owens on Wednesday night.

As of 7 p.m., the vote stood at 47.5% for Republican Owens, and 47.03% for McAdams. Owens had 172,753 votes to Democrat McAdams’ 171,056 votes.

A spokesman for McAdams issued a statement Wednesday noting that a significant number of votes remain to be processed.
