Candidate Concedes After One Day Recount Yields One Vote

Lesli Gooch (R) has halted her bid for a recount of ballots in California congressional race in which she placed third, narrowly missing a place on the fall general election ballot, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"After the first day's recount gave her only one additional vote, she decided to throw in the towel... Gooch is required to pay in advance for the preparation and cost of the one-day recount, which San Bernardino County election officials estimated at $6,330. The cost would have been reimbursed had Gooch prevailed."
