The results have not been certified, and the election is at a standstill after allegations of improper bonuses and ballots surfaced.

Harris said he will answer questions board members have.

“I look forward to sitting down with staff from the State Board of Elections later this week and answering any and all questions they have. I have always taken great pride in being open and transparent. While I plan to fully comply with the ongoing review process, I am eager to be certified so I can go to Congress and be a voice for the 9th District,” Harris said.

News also came out Monday that former Rep. Robert Pittenger will not run in the race if there is a new primary election.
