NC Board Of Elections Verifies Winners Of 3 Close Races

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The North Carolina State Board of Elections has made the winners of three close races official.

The panel certified Thursday the victories of U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre in the 7th Congressional District, Bill Cook in the 1st state Senate District and Amanda Stevenson in a District Court judgeship. Those races were still in the recount process when the board certified hundreds of other Election Day outcomes two weeks ago.

McIntyre is a Democrat who edged Republican challenger David Rouzer by 654 votes for his ninth term in Congress representing southeastern North Carolina. Cook is a Republican who edged Democratic Sen. Stan White of Dare County by 21 votes.

Stevenson defeated incumbent Judge Quon Bridges by less than 300 votes in a district covering Vance, Granville and Franklin counties.
