McAdams’ lead over Love narrows to fewer than 900 votes

SALT LAKE CITY — Ben McAdams’ lead over Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, continued to slip away Wednesday after an updated vote count out of Salt Lake and Juab counties showed the incumbent congresswoman gaining crucial votes, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

The Democratic candidate and current Salt Lake County mayor is now leading by 873 votes after more than 12,000 ballots were added to the 4th Congressional District.

And with the heavily-Republican Utah County expected to update its count on Friday, McAdams precarious lead of 0.36 percentage points is likely to change, and could potentially erode away entirely.
