Democrat concedes close House race in NY to GOP
Source: MSNBC

SYRACUSE, N.Y. A sixth Democratic House seat in New York fell to Republicans on Tuesday when freshman incumbent Dan Maffei conceded he could not overcome his opponent's narrow lead.

The Republican, Ann Marie Buerkle, will be the first woman to represent central New York's 25th Congressional District.

Maffei, who defeated Dale Sweetland to win the seat in 2008, called Buerkle to concede Tuesday, ending three weeks of ballot inspections, recounting and court wrangling.

A relatively rural district in Upstate New York falls into the hands of the GOP.

3. Hopefully he can return next time.
I hope Democrats smartly draw the district boundaries, as it does appear they will have control of the process there.
