(AP) -- Democratic congressional candidate David Gill says the numbers in his
race are too close for him to concede.
The Associated Press declared Republican Rodney Davis the winner in the
13th District on Tuesday.
But in a Wednesday statement, Gill says results in Macon County
show that it's still tight. The Bloomington
physician says he's looking at the impact of provisional ballots and legal
options available to the campaign to make sure there's a fair count.
Gill initially faced longtime Republican Congressman Tim Johnson of Urbana. But, just weeks
after an easy primary win in the new district, Johnson announced that he
wouldn't seek re-election.
Republicans chose Davis
to fill the place on the ballot. He was an aide to Republican Congressman John
Shimkus' and lives in Taylorville.
