Kelly Ayotte Not Conceding New Hampshire Senate Race Yet

(AP) Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan is declaring victory in the New Hampshire Senate race. But incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte is not conceding.

The Associated Press has yet to call the race. Unofficial results have Hassan up by fewer than 700 votes.

In a statement Hassan says: “It’s clear that we have maintained the lead and have won this race.”

But Ayotte issued her own statement saying: “We look forward to results being announced by the secretary of state, and ensuring that every vote is counted in this race that has received an historic level of interest.”

New Hampshire is the only Senate race where a winner has not yet been declared. Regardless of which way it goes, Republicans will retain control of the Senate. Either party could request a recount.
