While the national news is fixated on where the political course of Washington DC is headed, I want to remind everyone that there are still a lot of closely contested races out there. I've been keen on following NY-1 and NY-25 and will assure you that these races are far from over. In fact, as is the case with Dan Maffei, the incumbents are flailing in desperation. So whether I can entice some interest by holding up a Democrat dangling on the precipice of political destruction or inform you as to where the Big Red Wave will crest, I hope you'll read our coverage and continue to support these candidates.
With that said, NRO is reporting some sad news in VA-11 where Republican challenger Keith Fimian has conceded to Democrat Gerry Connolly.
One week after the election, the bad news for Republicans this morning: In Virginia's 11th Congressional District, the outer suburbs of Washington D.C., Keith Fimian is conceding defeat to Democrat incumbent Gerry Connolly. He is not seeking a recount; the current count shows Fimian trailing by 981 votes, or four tenths of one percent of all votes cast.
This still leaves 8 other races still being contested. Republicans are leading in most of them.
Karen at Lonely Conservate has some outstanding coverage of Dan Maffei's legal shenanagans in the NY-25 race. Please check it out!
