BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) -- Democratic congressional candidate David Gill says the numbers in his central Illinois 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.
