The New York 23rd Congressional District special election is over, not so fast according to Syracuse.com. Mark Weiner writes on Syracuse.com the two key pieces of information that Conservative Party Candidate Doug Hoffman used to concede may not have been true.
When Hoffman conceded he was down 5,335 votes. Weiner writes, “Now a recanvassing in the 11-county district shows that Owens’ lead has narrowed to 3,026 votes over Hoffman… The new vote totals mean the race will be decided by absentee ballots, of which about 10,200 were distributed...”
Owens was still sworn-in to congress even through according to Weiner, “the state sent a letter to the House Clerk last week explaining that no winner had been determined in the 23rd District, and therefore the state had not certified the election.”
