Republican Rouzer Concedes in Last Undecided U.S. House Race

Nov. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Republican David Rouzer conceded the last undecided U.S. House of Representatives race to Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre in North Carolina.

Jessica Wood, a spokeswoman for Rouzer, said in an e-mail that the challenger, a Republican state senator, conceded following a recount that he had requested after a canvass showed McIntyre, 56, leading by 655 votes.

The election of McIntyre to his ninth term means Democrats gained eight seats in the House in the Nov. 6 election. Republicans will still control the House, 234-201.

“I have called Congressman McIntyre to congratulate him on a hard-fought victory, and I wish him well as he joins a new Congress that will be dealing with very difficult issues facing our country,” Rouzer said in a statement.
