ELLMERS WINS! Dem Bob Etheridge to Concede in North Carolina

Another one bites the dust…
Rep. Bob “Who Are You?” Etheridge will concede today in the North Carolina House race. A recount this week confirmed that Renee Ellmers won the race in North Carolina.
National Journal reported:

Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-N.C.) is expected to concede this afternoon after results from a completed recount are likely to show he didn’t make up any significant ground in his race against Rep.-elect Renee Ellmers (R), according to campaign sources.

Etheridge has scheduled a 3 p.m. press conference to make the statement.

Officials certified Ellmers as the winner last week, but because her 1,489-vote lead over Etheridge was less than one percent of the total votes cast, the incumbent was legally permitted to ask for a recount.

The results of the recount will be announced this afternoon, but preliminary reports suggest they show no significant difference from the certified numbers.

Etheridge is best known for attacking a college student who asked him if he fully supported the Obama agenda.

Good-bye thug.

The win by Elmers will give Republicans their 62nd pickup in this historic election.

Congratulations Renee!
