FIRST ON 3: Rouzer to make statement on recount tomorrow

Monday, November 19th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Three days after finding out the final vote count shows he lost his run for Congress, Republican David Rouzer is yet to say whether he will request a recount. That should change tomorrow.

The State Board of Elections website shows results from Friday’s canvass have Rouzer trailing incumbent Rep. Mike McIntyre by 655 votes in their race for the 7th District seat in the US House. The margin represents 0.2 percent of the 336,739 votes cast in the election.

When asked for an update on where Rouzer stands in his decision whether to ask for a recount, campaign spokeswoman Jessica Wood said in an e-mail, “We will be releasing a statement tomorrow morning.”

Because the margin is so slim, Rouzer qualifies for a recount if he wants one, but it could come at a significant cost to the 12 counties that are part of the 7th District. Earlier today, Linda Coleman, the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, conceded her close race with Republican Dan Forest. It’s estimated her decision not to request a run-off saved North Carolina’s 100 counties upward of $2.5 million.

McIntyre, a Democrat, who at this point appears to have won a ninth term in Congress, declared victory despite a razor-thin majority on Election Night. Rouzer has been publicly silent ever since.
