Tate concedes to Potts, rather than contest primary margin of 106 votes

As reported here in the Washington Post, challenger Mark Tate has conceded victory to incumbent Sen. Russell Potts in the Republican primary held on June 10. Potts came the closest to winning of the three noteworthy anti-tax challengers to Republican incumbent Senators. He concluded that a recount would not change the numbers enough to affect the outcome, where the margin in the official count was 106 votes.
