Former Interior Department Secretary Ryan Zinke narrowly won the Republican primary to represent Montana’s District 1 in the U.S. House.
Zinke, whom former President Donald Trump endorsed, beat his opponent, Al Olszewski, by just over 1,600 votes, or 41.7% to 39.8%, according to the Associated Press.
Ballot printing errors delayed the results of Zinke’s primary by two days, the Associated Press reported. A Lincoln County was forced to hand count the results after a vendor printed the ballots on the wrong sized paper. Under Montana law, all ballots must be either manually counted or counted by a machine, the secretary of state’s office said.
