Repub. Concedes in Last Undecided 2010 Race, Means GOP Gained 63 Seats

Republican Randy Altschuler has conceded to Rep. Tim Bishop in the race to represent New York’s 1st Congressional district, which covers eastern Long Island. It was the last Congressional race in the nation that had been undecided, so we now know Republicans gained a total of 63 seats in the 2010 midterm elections, giving them a 242 to 193 majority in the House. Democrats would need to gain 25 seats in 2012 to regain control.

Altschuler’s concession ends a contentious few weeks in the Congressional race, with many ups and downs. On election day, Bishop was declared the winner by over 3,400 votes. But then local officials realized they had mis-tabulated the machines, and by the end of the week gave Altschuler a 383-vote lead. However, that lead disappeared as absentee ballots were counted, and by the time Altschuler conceded this morning, he trailed by at least 263 votes with under 1,000 absentee ballots left to be counted, according to Newsday.
