Rose concedes House race after provisionals fail to close gap

Three weeks after Election Day, Brighton Democrat Dave Rose is ready to give up the race for House District 30 after county officials certified vote totals on Monday showing him trailing Republican Kevin Priola 11,936 to 11,504 votes. The margin — 1.84 percent out of more than 23,000 votes cast — is greater than the 0.5 percent that would have triggered an automatic recount. "I'll go along with the final tally of losing by 432 votes," Rose told the Colorado Independent on Tuesday. "It's very disappointing," he added.
