Democratic Congressman Mike McIntyre said Sunday he would return to Washington this week even as a recount looms in his re-election.
McIntyre finished 507 votes ahead of Republican David Rouzer in one of the most expensive congressional races in the nation.
His campaign manager said McIntyre would travel to the nation's capital Tuesday for his congressional duties."His commitment to the citizens and communities he represents is strong and solid," Lachlan McIntosh said in a statement. "We have a large team in place all over the 7th District as county Boards of Elections continue to review the provisional and absentee ballots. We are confident our lead will continue and potentially grow -- and that our victory will stand.”
