Rouzer concedes to McIntyre in race for Congress

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Republican David Rouzer has conceded to Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre in the race for the 7th 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.

Congressman McIntyre said, "I am very grateful to have the honor of serving the citizens of of Eastern North Carolina.  My commitment has always been to serve the people back home…We have many challenges facing our great nation, and I will continue to seek bi-partisan solutions to help create jobs, protect Social Security and Medicare, help our small businesses, farmers, veterans, coastal communities, and always keep our nation safe and strong, and continue my very strong commitment to education! McIntyre went to say, “I thank Senator Rouzer for his commitment and dedication to public service, and I wish him well in his future endeavors."

Choosing your lucky lotto numbers

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Wilmington, NC (WWAY) — Whether it’s your date of birth, an old jersey number, or just a guess. Lottery players say there is a method to their madness.

During one six-hour window on Wednesday the store sold close to 450 Powerball tickets were sold at the Wrightsville Country Store in Wilmington.

“It was crazy all day man, like non-stop business” said Alex Damrah of the Wrightsville Country Store. “People came in like three times already to buy Powerball tickets trying to chase the dream of being a millionaire.”

While many let the computers do the thinking for them some people get personal with their picks.

“I picked one of my own it’s my niece, my nephew, my age, my wife’s age, and my anniversary” says Bruce Comeau.

With $550-million dollars on the line some players say they decided to switch up their strategy and take a risk.

“I usually let the computer pick and do the quick pick so this time I decided to go with my own instinct and I picked my daughters age, my daughter will be two this year,” said Ronald Evans. “My birthday is the 27th of December and then just some random birth dates and age numbers.”
