(SMITHFIELD) - State Sen. David Rouzer has called for a recount in the 7th Congressional District.
The Johnston County Republican trails Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre by 655 votes out of approximately 370,000 votes cast in the race.

That is within the 1 percent margin required for a candidate to ask a recount

“Considering this is the closest Congressional race in the country and in light of the irregularity previously found in Bladen County, which significantly reduced the vote margin at that time, I have decided to request a mandatory recount of the votes cast in the 7th Congressional District as allowed by law,” Rouzer said in a statement. “In a race this close, accidental human error could easily change the outcome. It is important to ensure that every legal vote cast is properly and accurately counted.”

Recounting will take place on Monday and Tuesday next week.
