Update: The Six Unresolved House Races

November 12, 2012
-- North Carolina's 7th District: Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre is hanging on to 420 more votes than GOP challenger David Rouzer and plans to return to work in DC this week -- but the numbers are expected to change as canvassing continues. -- Florida's 18th District: While the votes have all been counted in this race and GOP Rep. Allen West continues to trail by more than the maximum number that would trigger an automatic recount. The Associated Press:

A partial recount gave Rep. Allen West a slight bump Sunday in his fight to remain in Congress, but not enough to mandate a full review of ballots or to end threats of lawsuits from his campaign. St. Lucie County's limited recount revised downward the totals for both West and the unofficial winner in the race, Democrat Patrick Murphy. Because Murphy lost more votes in the recount than West, it was a net gain for the Republican incumbent, though his margin of loss remained just above the threshold to order a full recount. ... Though not required, St. Lucie County agreed to the partial recount to settle concerns over the processing of some early votes, which election officials said was done "out of an abundance of caution." ... Still, a protracted legal fight by West appeared more likely with each passing day.
