GOP Candidate Rouzer Gains Recount in NC Congressional Race

By    |   Wednesday, 21 November 2012 12:54 PM EST

David Rouzer, the Republican candidate for Congress in North Carolina’s 7th District, has gained a recount against his Democratic opponent Rep. Mike McIntyre.

McIntyre won the current count by 655 votes, well within the 1 percent range allowing Rouzer to request a recount. And that’s exactly what he did Tuesday. The recount will begin Monday and is scheduled to finish by Wednesday.

"Considering this is the closest congressional race in the country and in light of the irregularity previously found in Bladen County, which significantly reduced the vote margin at that time, I have decided to request a mandatory recount of the votes cast in the 7th congressional district as allowed by law,” Rouzer said in a statement, The Hill reports.

“In a race this close, accidental human error could easily change the outcome. It is important to ensure that every legal vote cast is properly and accurately counted."

McIntyre was redistricted into a more Republican area this year, and national Republicans worked on Rouzer’s behalf.

Among other late-breaking races, feisty Florida freshman Rep. Allen West conceded defeat to his Democratic opponent Tuesday. And in Louisiana, two Republican incumbents will compete in a runoff next month, after being thrown into the same race through redistricting. The combatants are rookie Jeff Landry and four-termer Charles Boustany.
