"In this case it doesn't make a huge amount of difference," Elias said. "There haven't been a huge amount of challenges over all. There have been more challenges to Herring ballots than there have been to Obenshain ballots."

In response to the Herring campaign's estimates, the Obenshain campaign would only say that the recount was not yet concluded.

"This is an ongoing process," Obenshain communications director Paul Logan told TPM in an email. "It's important to see it through and ensure that we get an accurate result. That's been our goal since the minute polls closed."
