Democratic congressional candidate Carolyn Bourdeaux on Friday announced her intention to file for a recount in her tight House race against incumbent Republican Rep. Rob Woodall in Georgia's Seventh District.

Out of more than 280,000 total votes, Bourdeaux trails Woodall by 419 votes, a margin of 0.14 percent. Per Georgia law, a recount can be requested if the margin is less than one percent.

The race has not been certified yet, but Bourdeaux said she will request the recount once it is.

"It is crucial that every eligible vote is counted and every voice is heard," said Bourdeaux's spokesman, Jake Best. "We want to make sure every vote was counted correctly and fairly, and that is why we intend to request a recount of this race."
