North Carolina: Rouzer Concedes; McIntyre Returns to Congress
Posted at 9:34 p.m. on Nov. 28, 2012
“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, a state senator, said in a statement.
McIntyre, a conservative Democrat who ran an expert campaign in a Republican district, will begin his 9th term in January.
The decennial redistricting process in the Tar Heel State drew McIntyre’s home out of his district and made the 7th significantly more Republican. But despite the uphill climb he faced, McIntyre managed to squeak out a close victory.
North Carolina’s 7th District was the final outstanding House race in the country.
