LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Candidate for Commissioner C, Democrat Ross Miller responded Tuesday following the decision by Clark County officials not to certify the results of the race - a race where he is ahead by 10 votes.
Miller says in part, “Rest assured I have won this election. We will defend the integrity of the fair process... Our hard-working elections officials administered."
Thank you for the outpouring of support. Rest assured, I have won this election. We will defend the integrity of the fair process our hard working elections officials administered (1/6)— Ross Miller (@rossjmiller) November 18, 2020
He went on to say no election is perfect and races are often decided by small margins.
“We don't toss out all of the ballots and redo elections because of minor errors that occur in every election," Miller posted on social media.
He also added that he filed a legal action to overturn the Trump campaign's requests to strike all ballots and redo the election.
Today we filed legal action to overturn the Trump cronies’ requests to strike all ballots and redo my election. We will prevail. This will not be a close call in court. I intend to make sure your votes are counted. Every vote truly counts. (6/6)— Ross Miller (@rossjmiller) November 18, 2020
Las Vegas Councilman Stavros Anthony, Miller's opponent in the race, released a statement on Tuesday saying he was “surprised and pleased' by a possible special election.
