Republican David Rouzer concedes to Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre in North Carolina

Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. Republican David Rouzer has conceded to Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre in the race for a North Carolina congressional district.

Rouzer announced his decision Wednesday night after a completed machine recount in the 7th Congressional District showed McIntyre keeping a 654-vote lead over Rouzer from more than 336,000 votes cast.

McIntyre had a 655-vote lead before Rouzer requested the recount that began this week. The 12th and final county recount finished Wednesday evening. Rouzer could have asked for a more detailed hand-to-eye recount.

The concession means McIntyre will represent southeastern North Carolina on Capitol Hill for a ninth term. Rouzer is an outgoing state senator who once served in U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms' office.

1. A rare exception to gerrymandering NOT working.

Good for McIntyre.

3. Cost of recount estimated at $50,000--with a change of ONE vote going to challenger.

I guess fiscal restraint and conservancy is only to be applied to Dems, huh?

I wish that there would be a rule like challenging a decision on the football field.
IF there is no change in the outcome, make the challenger's campaign pay
for the cost of the recount.

"The cost of the recount is estimated at more than $50,000. Hand-eye recounts would have added another $150,000."
