One more Dem will be returning to Congress from NC after barely squeaking by

the Republican attempt to re-district him out of office.


Two tensely watched political races got a little closer to the finish line Friday night. Results show that Democrat Mike McIntyre will return for a ninth term in Congress, barring a recount that changes the outcome.

Complete, unofficial results show McIntyre defeated Rouzer by 655 votes out of more than 336,000 cast in 12 counties, including Johnston, Brunswick, Cumberland and New Hanover.

The margin is within the 1 percent needed for Rouzer to ask for a recount. Election results become official when the State Board of Elections certifies them.

Both Rouzer and McIntyre have been in Washington, D.C., this week. McIntyre’s camp said he was returning to work. Rouzer was taking part in congressional orientation and was part of a photo shoot for congressional freshmen.
