Final House Race Decided; GOP Net Gain: 63 Seats

Rep. Tim Bishop (D) has defeated Republican challenger Randy Altschuler in New York’s 1st district, a victory finalized by an Altschuler concession Wednesday morning in the nation’s final outstanding House race that cements GOP gains in the 2010 House midterms at 63 seats.

It was a roller-coaster ballot-counting process that saw several lead changes and court hearings over the past 36 days, but Bishop’s ultimate margin of victory was 263 votes out of more than 194,000 cast in the Long Island district......

I guess the Democrats finally "found" enough "outstanding votes" to keep Larsen entrenched over Koster in WA-2?

This is what a 63-seat blowout looks like.

I'm surprised in this day and age that we still have states with a single House seat.  I guess that's the way the cookie crumbles.

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle
