Dead Heat in NY-25
Ann Marie Buerkle, Romney endorsed candidate in Central New York is among the few remaining undecided races for House today, after a strong performance against Democrat incumbent Dan Maffei. Entering into today trailing by over 2,000 votes, late results from Wayne county have propelled her into the lead by 659 votes. She now has to hold that margin among the usually conservative-leaning absentee voters, and she can take her place among the 240 or more Republicans set to serve in the House of Representatives.
Overall, well done conservatives. Though some are disappointed that we lost Senate races in Nevada and possibly Colorado (hopefully Rossi can move ahead in Washington), November 2 was an amazing night and provides a tremendous setback to the leftist Obama/Reid agenda. We have taken a massive number of State Houses, including State Legislatures, giving us more than a fighting chance in the redistricting battles that are soon to come. In the House we have not only undone in one cycles all of the gains that Democrats made in the last two, but we have pushed them to the fewest seats in more than six decades. A new wave of conservatives have hit Washington, and this country will be better for it.
