A bunch of Republicans, including Mia Love, are holding out hope that thousands of absentee and provisional ballots in the 4th District may erase Rep. Jim Matheson's narrow lead.

Matheson thinks they are dreaming.

"I'm not concerned," he told The Salt Lake Tribune on Wednesday about his 2,646 lead with roughly 28,700 ballots left to count. "It's going to hold. It's going to be fine. It's going to come in pretty much like the regular votes did."

Those ballots are among the 72,000 left to be counted in Salt Lake, Utah, Juab and Sanpete counties. The official tally will take place on Nov. 20.
