McComb Backs Away From Recount

CORPUS CHRISTI - It looks like Nueces County Commissioner Joe McComb is throwing in the towel.

McComb tells KRIS6 he's not going to ask for a recount of last month's runoff election, after all.

The flap started over some confusion with ballot boxes on election night, that led to questions on the final vote tally.

Challenger Brent Chesney won by 162 votes.

McComb says he met with county elections officials on Friday. He says he now believes a recount won't change the results.
