Congresswoman-elect Ashley Hinson beat Abby Finkenauer on Tuesday night in Iowa’s First Congressional District. Her press secretary, Annie Topp, released a statement on Thursday.

“Congresswoman-elect Hinson has faith in the electoral process and believes that every vote should be counted. If there is fraud, it should be investigated and dealt with. Our democracy depends on being able to follow the will of the people wherever it leads. Rep. Hinson trusts the process in Iowa and hopes that other states have the same integrity as Iowa election officials have shown.”
