Fleming leads razor-close election for 4th Congressional District race; Carmouche won't concede

Republicans appeared to have held on to a reliably GOP congressional seat Saturday night as Dr. John Fleming narrowly led Democrat Paul Carmouche in Northwest Louisiana's 4th Congressional District race.

Fleming received 48 percent of the vote to 47.7 percent for Carmouche, according to complete but unofficial returns. Fleming led by 356 votes out of more than 92,000 cast.

Fleming declared victory but Carmouche did not concede defeat.
