Too Close To Call: Update On Deadlocked Races

November 9, 2010

Illinois 8: Republican Joe Walsh sent out a statement Tuesday touting his lead and proclaiming Cook County absentee ballot-counting finished. If the Rep. Melissa Bean (D)-friendly county is indeed finished counting votes, it's very hard to see how the incumbent scrapes enough votes together to survive.

New York 1: Republican Randy Altschuler leads Rep. Tim Bishop (D) by either 392 votes or 383 votes, depending on who you believe. But with Bishop requesting a hand recount, expect this to play out for quite some time.

New York's 25: Republican Ann Marie Buerkle has a 659-vote edge over Rep. Dan Maffei (D), but it'll be another week before Onondaga County -- Maffei's base and the district's population center -- begins its tally of over 5,000 absentees. Maffei needs to win over 56 percent of those ballots (he took 54 percent on Election Day there) in order to overcome Buerkle's lead.

Texas 27: With just 736 overseas and provisional ballots left to count, and with Republican Blake Farenthold holding a 792-vote lead over Rep. Solomon Ortiz (D), the Democrat has requested a manual recount of ballots. Farenthold looks to be in decent shape.
