Forest, McIntyre still lead in close races




RALEIGH — Democrat Linda Coleman continues to narrow Republican Dan Forest's advantage in the race for North Carolina lieutenant governor as county officials make final tallies from last week's elections.

The State Board of Elections said two-thirds of the 100 counties had completed their canvass Friday afternoon.

The data shows Forest holding a roughly 9,300-vote advantage over Coleman from more than 4 million ballots cast. Large counties such as Mecklenburg, Guilford and New Hanover had yet to turn in their totals.

Forest held an 11,000-vote edge late on election night. Coleman can get a recount if the margin remains below 10,000 votes.

In the 7th Congressional District, partially canvassed results show Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre expanding his lead to 517 votes over Republican David Rouzer. It's still small enough for a recount.
