Looks like Democrat Mike Oliverio won't be asking for a recount in WV-1, unless something comes up in the official tallying of votes.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The tight race for the state's 1st Congressional District seat apparently ended with Democrat Mike Oliverio's congratulatory call to Republican David McKinley.
Oliverio is unlikely to ask for a recount, according to a press release from his campaign office.
"Only a substantial shift during canvassing would prompt a recount request," Oliverio said in the release.
