This comes as a recount is underway in the race which has been too close to call. McCormick’s campaign has also filed a lawsuit in commonwealth court arguing that undated mail-in ballots should be counted. While Pennsylvania law says the ballots have to be dated, a federal court says dating an envelope is irrelevant as long as the ballot is otherwise received on time and from a qualified voter.

Oz currently leads McCormick by 922 votes for the nomination and has declared victory despite the recount that was ordered on May 25. Results from the recount are to be reported to the Department of State on June 8 where a winner will be announced.
