FAIRBANKS - Karl Kassel says his fight to unseat Mike Kelly for a place in the Alaska House is over.
Kassel, a Democrat, says he will not appeal the final outcome, a four-vote edge for Kelly, the incumbent Republican.
The final count had Kelly taking in 5,024 votes and Kassel getting 5,020.
Kassel said last week he plans to move out of the district and has no plans to seek public office again.
Kelly won his first race in 2004. He has served on the House Finance Committee for four years and is expected to retain that seat.
