House Races: Dems Hold One Seat, Lose Another

November 23, 2010

Rep. Jim Costa (D-CA) was finally declared the winner today in his Central Valley district, while Rep. Dan Maffei (D-NY) conceded defeat in his Syracuse-based seat.

The combination of the two results gives Republicans a net gain of 63 seats for the cycle.

Costa found himself trailing farmer Andy Vidak (R) on Election Night, but as mail ballots and absentee votes were counted, he managed to grab a lead and never look back. He finished with a 3,031-vote edge over Vidak, and won 52-48.

Maffei's race was closer, but as we've reported previously, he had little chance of recovering from Republican Ann Marie Buerkle's 567-vote advantage. Maffei had considered a recount, but was reportedly under pressure to concede.

In other undecided House contests, Rep. Tim Bishop (D-NY) holds a 235-vote edge over Republican Randy Altschuler as absentee ballot counting came to a close. There are challenges to over 2,000 ballots, but Bishop's camp said Altschuler objected to most of them, meaning Bishops lead may indeed be greater.

In the other race, Rep. Jerry McNerney (D-CA) hold a building lead in his contest.
