Too Close To Call: Update On Deadlocked Races

Virginia 11th: Rep. Gerry Connolly (D) leads Republican Keith Fimian by 930 votes. Connolly declared victory on Friday, but Fimian has yet to concede. Washington 2nd: Rep. Rick Larsen (D) leads Republican John Koster by 3,841 votes. This one has broken open for Larsen. Democrat Trailing: California 20th: Republican Andy Vidak leads Rep. Jim Costa (D) by 1,091 votes. However, Costa may be in good shape because there are still 50,000 votes to be counted from Fresno County, Costa's base. Most of the ballots from Kings County, a Republican stronghold, are already in. Illinois 8th: Republican Joe Walsh leads Rep. Melissa Bean (D) by 350 votes. Absentee ballots from Cook County -- Bean's base -- are currently being counted, so she needs to take the lead now before absentee ballots in the Republican parts of the district are set to be counted starting in mid-November. Bean was also floated as a possibility for a job in the White House, a sign that the writing is on the wall. New York 1st: Republican Randy Altschuler leads Rep. Tim Bishop by 392 votes. Bishop has called for a full hand recount. There are approximately 10,000 absentee ballots still to be counted; 4,200 from voters of parties that endorsed Altschuler and 3,900 from voters of parties that endorsed Bishop. New York 25th: Republican Ann Marie Buerkle leads Rep. Dan Maffei (D) by 684 votes. Maffei said he needs to get more than the 54 percent he got out of Onondaga County on Election Day when the absentee ballots are counted in order to close the gap. Texas 27th: Republican Blake Farenthold leads Rep. Solomon Ortiz (D) by 792 votes. All the ballots have been counted. Ortiz wants a hand recount.
