Democratic 2nd Congressional winner says opponent has right to ask for recount

Jared Golden however is concerned about dragging this process out...saying that that might hurt the people he was elected to serve.

A spokesman for Poliquin suggested there's distrust in the "artificial intelligence" used in the ranked-choice computer algorithm.

The spokesman says there will be "a traditional ballot recount conducted by real people."

The recount is expected to take about a month, meaning there will be a race to ensure it's completed before the new Congress is seated.

Golden is confident he will win the recount.
