Republican Renee Ellmers has defeated Democrat Bob Etheridge, a.k.a. the Carolina Strangler, in North Carolina’s 2nd District:

U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge will concede at 3 p.m. today after recount results show that Renee Ellmers will be the next congresswoman from the 2nd Congressional District.

Ellmers was 1,489 votes ahead of incumbent U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge today after a week-long recount.

The N.C. Board of Elections will certify the results Tuesday.

The final recount was 93,878 votes for Ellmers, a Republican, and 92,389 for Etheridge, a Democrat.

In the end, Etheridge gained just a six-vote difference.
