Congressman Bob “Who Are You” Etheridge has conceded defeat to Renee Ellmers. In the unofficial recount, Ellmers has maintained her approximately 1,500 vote lead. Ellmers, if you will recall, was rated AQ by the NRA and was eventually endorsed by them. Etheridge, by contrast, was rated D by the NRA. It is somewhat surprising that someone with his weak gun rights credentials could hold on to his seat in rural eastern North Carolina for so long.
One last thing about Renee Ellmers – she has her CCW and didn’t hide that fact.
