(NECN: Concord, NH) - Former New Hampshire state Attorney General Kelly Ayotte is the winner of the Republican primary for U.S. Senate.

Her closest challenger, Ovide Lamontagne, has accepted the verdict of the voters and will not ask for a recount.

It was an extremely close race. The secretary of state's office says Ayotte won by just 1,667 votes.

"We came very, very close," says Lamontagne. He says he will remain a "fighter" for the people of New Hampshire.

"We should all hold our heads high," says Lamontagne.
