Charlie Brown concedes: Tom McClintock wins 4th Congressional District race

WASHINGTON ” Democrat Charlie Brown has conceded defeat to Republican state Sen. Tom McClintock in their hard-fought race for California’s 4th Congressional District House seat.

Brown’s spokesman says the Democrat called McClintock earlier Wednesday to concede. It comes a day after final tallies from count registrars showed McClintock with a lead of more than 1,500 votes.

Brown could have requested a recount but McClintock’s lead looked insurmountable.



McClintock will replace longtime Republican Rep. John Doolittle, who’s retiring in the rural district north of Sacramento.

It was one of just a few unsettled House races nationwide.
