House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended her decision Thursday to continue offering her blessing to a Democratic probe into a contested Iowa House race certified by bipartisan state election officials after multiple recounts in Republicans’ favor.

Failed Democratic candidate Rita Hart lost the race in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District to freshman Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks by a mere six votes. Despite Miller-Meeks serving in the House as the certified winner upon multiple recounts, Hart has continued to contest the results with a direct appeal to the lower chamber, bypassing state avenues for challenging a race.
