-- Florida's 18th District: In one of the most-watched House races in the nation, GOP Rep. Allen West trails Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy by 2,456 votes. Though it's outside the margin for a recount, West is calling for one. His campaign is citing "disturbing irregularities" at polling places in St. Lucie County. -- California's 7th, 36th, and 52nd Districts: In the state's 7th District, GOP Rep. Dan Lungren narrowly trails Democratic opponent Ami Bera with numerous ballots still to be counted. The Sacramento Bee: In the 36th District, GOP Rep. Mary Bono Mack is losing to Democratic challenger Raul Ruiz by over 4,500 votes -- but says she won't concede yet. Over 183,000 ballots still need to be counted in the county -- though it's not clear how many of those are from the 36th District. Bono Mack had earlier said (early Wednesday morning) that, looking at the numbers, "Historically speaking, he will win." In the 52nd District, Democrat Scott Peters is leading GOP Rep. Brian Bilbray by 685 votes with all precincts reporting -- but still to be counted are about 475,000 absentee and provisional ballots in the county, and Bilbray's spokesperson told the U-T San Diego that between 120,000 and 125,000 of those are from the district. -- North Carolina's 7th District: Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre has a slim, 507-vote lead over state Sen. David Rouzer -- but about 4,500 provisional ballots are not yet counted in the counties that lie completely or almost fully within the district, the Raleigh News & Observer reports. A possible recount, if one becomes necessary, wouldn't begin until November 26.
