Republicans decided Friday against seeking a recount in New Mexico, where Democrat Al Gore was declared the winner in the presidential race by a 366-vote margin.

Recounts can be requested for specific precincts, rather than a statewide recount.

While Florida election officials carried out a contested recount of ballots from Tuesday's presidential race, here in a drafty warehouse patrolled by sheriff's deputies, officials continued the struggle to count--for the first time--ballots cast in Bernalillo County.
