RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina could see votes recounted in at least one election race as the Republican trailing in the contest for state auditor says he'll demand a recount if the margin remains razor-thin.
Chuck Stuber said Thursday he'll seek a recount of his race with two-term incumbent Beth Wood to ensure the final results are right. He said the same last week.
Stuber trails the Democrat by about 2,700 votes out of almost 4.5 million cast. He has that right if that gap stays under 10,000 after county elections boards count provisional and absentee ballots.
Stuber worked for the FBI for three decades and was the state elections board's chief investigator before launching his campaign.
The auditor tracks how the state's money is spent and works to highlight inefficiency or waste.
