Democratic congressional candidate Dan Feehan has conceded defeat in Minnesota's razor-close 1st District race.

Feehan issued a statement Friday saying all counties in the southern Minnesota district have now finished checking their results for accuracy, and the final count still shows him trailing Republican winner Jim Hagedorn by 0.45 percentage points. That's above the state's threshold of 0.25 points for triggering a taxpayer-paid recount.
