Ortiz for Congress Committee on recount in the Texas 27 Race

Statement from the Ortiz for Congress Committee on recount in the Texas 27 Race

The Ortiz for Congress Committee released this statement following today’s announcement that paperwork had been filed requesting a recount with the Texas Secretary of State pertaining to the Texas 27 Race:

“This afternoon, the Ortiz for Congress Committee filed the appropriate paperwork with the Secretary of State’s Office in Austin as we seek a recount in a race that is too close to call. Upon clarifying the process with the counties and the Secretary of State, we followed all appropriate measures and have requested a manual recount in Willacy, Kenedy, Kleberg, and Nueces Counties and portions of San Patricio and Cameron Counties.

"Congressman Ortiz wants to ensure that the votes of the people of South Texas be counted accurately and that no vote be left out.”


Provisional and military ballots are being counted today across the district

No counties have certified their votes

The hate language being thrown at Ortiz over at the Caller Times is horrendous. Instead of attacking his actions or lack of actions, they attack him as a person. Those people are just haters. It is the responsibility of Ortiz to challenge the vote count. Blake won with less than 1 percent and the discrapencies started coming out the next day. Can you blame him for wanting to ensure every vote is counted?
