WASHINGTON - The last undecided House race has been called for the incumbent Democrat, bringing an unofficial close to the 2012 campaign more than three weeks after Election Day.

North Carolina Rep. Mike McIntyre has narrowly survived a challenge from Republican David Rouzer, who conceded Wednesday night after a recount.

All races for president, Senate, House and governor have now been called by The Associated Press.

House Republicans will keep the majority with 234 members next year. There will be 200 Democrats in the minority, with one vacancy.

In the Senate, 53 Democrats will comprise the majority, with two independents caucusing with them. There will be 45 Republican senators.

President Barack Obama won 27 states and the District of Columbia. Republican Mitt Romney won 24 states. Several states are still counting.
