James, who had refused for weeks to concede after the race was called for Peters on Nov. 4, recognized that the GOP-led state Board of Canvassers certified the results of the election and offered his congratulations to his opponent.
“The results of the election were certified yesterday. I am happy that the Board of Canvassers led by Norm Shinkle asked the legislature to take a top down review of election law.
