Rep. Bob Good, R-Va., remains hopeful in his tight primary race and said Wednesday that he thinks he could prevail against primary challenger John McGuire.

"This race remains too close to call," Good wrote on the social media platform, X. "We are in a period where the law provides a process for evaluating the accuracy of all the vote totals from election day to ensure everyone can have full confidence in the certified results."

"Provisional ballots and mail-in ballots are also still to be counted," he continued. "We are asking for full transparency from the officials involved and patience from the people of the 5th District over the coming weeks as the certification of results is completed. We believe we can still prevail."

Good and McGuire are running for Virginia's fifth congressional district and as of Wednesday afternoon, the race remains too close to call. 

As of now McGuire is ahead with 50.3% of the votes while Good has 49.7% of the votes, according to NBC News.

Former President Donald Trump endorsed McGuire while Freedom Caucus members including Reps. Chip Roy, R-Texas, Andrew Clyde, R-Ga., and Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., endorsed Good

Good got flack from Trump when he endorsed Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis in the GOP presidential primary.
