Hoffman ‘unconcedes’ in N.Y.-23 House race


Good for him…if it’s possible to “unconcede” that is. I would think so given that the votes are not all counted and the tally has not yet been certified. It would be a stunning reversal of the race in Upstate NY. They are still counting more than 10,000 absentee votes and Hoffman would need at least 65% of them to win. Given all the weirdness of the Al Franken vote count, they should at least let the votes be counted. Stay tuned…

Doug Hoffman

Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman has “unconceded” in New York’s special House election after reports that the vote margin narrowed between him and Rep. Bill Owens (D).

Hoffman conceded the race on Election Night after learning he trailed Owens by 5,335 votes. But the Syracuse Post-Standard reported last week that the margin had shrunk to 3,026 votes after recanvassing.

Hoffman appeared on conservative commenatator Glenn Beck’s radio show this afternoon. Beck asked the him if he would “unconcede.”
