Final undecided race of 2010 ends

The last outstanding race of the 2010 mid-term election ended yesterday in NY-1 as Randy Altschuler conceeded to his Democratic opponent, Rep. Tim Bishop:

Republican Randy Altschuler conceded to Rep. Tim Bishop Wednesday morning, ending the last unresolved Congressional race in the nation.

Altschuler, a St. James businessman who poured $2.8 million of his own money into the race, congratulated Bishop (D-Southampton) and said he would not seek a full hand recount of the nearly 200,000 ballots cast.

Altschuler trailed Bishop by at least 263 votes with less than 1,000 uncounted absentee ballots.

This means that Republicans picked up 63 seats in the House of Representatives in the mid-term.
