ATLANTA - Gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel has conceded her runoff for the Republican nomination, saying she will not seek a recount against Nathan Deal.
The recount, by law, is automatic when candidates are separated by less than 1 percentage point. But Handel said she is endorsing Deal's campaign so they can focus on running against former Gov. Roy Barnes, who won the Democratic nomination in July's primary.

State results with 99 percent of precincts reporting:
