12 Days Later Edwards Concedes to Wynn

After nearly two weeks of counting votes in Maryland's fourth Congressional District challenger Donna Edwards finally conceded the race to incumbent Al Wynn late Sunday night.

The latest count showed Edwards down by 2,275 with only a few thousands left to be tabulated.

Edwards, who made Wynn's support of the war in Iraq a key point in this campaign, said the problems many in the district had with the electronic voting machines "really troubled" her but she is no longer consideration legal action which look like a real possibility on election day and shortly thereafter.

Wynn agreed that there were problems and but thinks better training and pay for poll workers will begin to cure some of these issues.
