From the Washington Post:
New Hampshire has certified former state Attorney General Kelly Ayotte (AY’-aht) as the winner of the Republican primary for U.S. Senate.
Ayotte was endorsed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and won a narrow victory over Ovide Lamontagne (LAH’-mohn-tayn). His conservative credentials and courting of the tea party pulled him close in the final days of the campaign.
Lamontagne has until 5 p.m. to decide whether he’ll seek a recount because the margin of victory fell within 1.5 percent of the total votes cast.
The secretary of state’s office says Ayotte’s official margin of victory was 1,667 votes.
