Update: The Five Unresolved House Races

There are still five remaining uncalled House races. Here's the latest from California, Arizona, Florida, and North Carolina:

-- California's 7th and 52nd Districts:

In the 7th District Democrat Ami Bera further expanded his lead over GOP Rep. Dan Lungren as Sacramento County continues counting votes. His lead -- previously 1,779 votes -- is now 3,824 votes.

Over in the state's 52nd District, Democrat Scott Peters' lead over Rep. Brian Bilbray also grew yet again: At the end of last week he led by 1,334 votes, and Tuesday night that lead stood at about 1,900 votes.

-- Arizona's 2nd District:

Democrat Ron Barber is holding a narrow lead over Republican Martha McSally: Currently 654 votes.

-- North Carolina's 7th District:

Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre is still leading GOP challenger David Rouzer by 420 votes -- the same as he was Monday. The Fayetteville Observer:

Both sides in the 7th Congressional District race are lining up lawyers and volunteers to monitor the final counting of provisional and absentee ballots this week. ... This week, county election offices will sort through provisional ballots to determine if the ballots were eligible to be cast, and they'll count any lingering absentee ballots. It's unclear how many ballots have yet to be tallied in the 7th District race.

-- Florida's 18th District:

Rep. Allen West still trails by a margin or votes -- 1,907 -- that is more than .5 percent, too large to trigger an automatic recount. But here's Tuesday's Miami Herald with the latest drama:

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner is sending three representatives to St. Lucie County today to try to figure out how 799 votes disappeared in Sunday's partial recount of the tight, nationally watched congressional race between Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West and Democrat Patrick Murphy. ... West's campaign filed a complaint in St. Lucie County Circuit Court on Tuesday asking a judge to order a recount of all 37,379 ballots cast in St. Lucie County during the eight-day early voting period. ... West argues a full recount is justified because a partial recount on Sunday showed Murphy losing 667 votes and West losing 132 - a net gain of 535 votes for West.
