The Altschuler surprise

Republican challenger Randy Altschuler appeared to have suffered a heartbreaking loss to incumbent Democratic incumbent Tim Bishop in New York’s First Congressional District on Tuesday night by a margin of 3,400 votes. After a recanvass of voting machines that was completed today, however, Altschuler took the lead by 392 votes over Bishop. A similar scenario has taken place in the Twenty-Fifth Congressional District, where Republican challenger Ann Marie Buerkle is now leading incumbent Democratic Dan Maffei by 659 votes. We’ll be updating this story as we can, but don’t take your eye off New York yet.
