McAdams claimed victory over Republican Rep. Mia Love Monday night after new results showed her trailing by 739 votes in the 4th Congressional District race.
"I'm eager to get to work," McAdams said, surrounded by his family at a news conference held at his Millcreek campaign headquarters. "We are confident there is no way Rep. Love will retake the lead."
McAdams, who spent last week in Washington, D.C., attending the orientation for new members of Congress, tweeted midday Monday that clerks from Salt Lake and Utah counties "are working around the clock" to get votes counted accurately.
He said in his tweet, "Whatever the outcome, thank you! However, can we change the load screen on the county clerk’s page from ‘Election Night Reporting’ to ‘Election Month Reporting?’"
