The race for the Seventh Congressional District in California is still too close to call.  Ami Bera leads Dan Lungren by almost 1800 votes.  
As the current leader, Democratic Challenger Bera is confident he won't be in the position of having to ask for a recount even though his lead is less than one percent,  "This momentum that we're seeing will continue and that there….I don't imagine there will be a need for anything like that."
The Lungren campaign hasn't broached the subject of a recount either, but  Campaign Manager Jeff Wyly is crunching the numbers, "You know, math doesn't lie, I would say. And there's a certain point where we get down to a small enough number still outstanding and either, you know, we're up a certain amount or down a certain amount.  And we can just tell that the math either is there or isn't there."
Wyly estimates there are about 70,000 of the 130,000 outstanding ballots that have votes affecting the race.   
The Sacramento County Elections office says it will have an updated count at three o'clock Tuesday afternoon.
