Democrats Win Final Outstanding House Race

Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC) finally won his congressional race, "earning a razor-thin victory over his Republican challenger after a machine recount produced hardly any change in the margin," the AP reports.

The 113th Congress will be represented by 201 Democrats and 234 Republicans. Democrats entered the 2012 elections holding 190 House seats -- but due to vacancies in three Democrat-held seats, they gained eight seats overall.
