The Republican opposition to Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood prematurely claimed success in the race for her Home seat and went to the first day of new member orientation, even after Underwood was declared the winner.
Oberweis stated victory last Wednesday when votes were still being counted.
Underwood’s project never conceded and criticized Oberweis for making an early call.
” Jim Oberweis does not get to call this election: the citizens do. There are thousands of votes that have yet to be counted. We value every citizen who made their voice heard, and our county clerks and election officials should count every tally in as expeditious and transparent a manner as is possible,” Underwood’s project stated in a statement.
” Based on openly readily available data, we stay confident that as soon as tallies are counted, this race will reflect that the voters have actually reelected Congresswoman Lauren Underwood.”
Neither Oberweis’ project nor Underwood’s office immediately responded to Business Insider’s ask for remark.
On Thursday, the day before the new member orientation, Underwood, a registered nurse who worked on health care policy for the Obama administration and who is the youngest Black lady to serve in Congress when she was first elected, officially stated victory in the race.
