    Maybe Hoffman shouldn't have conceded?

    A recanvass shows the gap closing to 3,000 votes with 10,000 Absentee ballot to go!

    A Third Party Candidate closes to within 3,000 votes!

    Not so fast! Recanvass gives Hoffman hope in NY-23

    A recanvassing of votes cast in the highly contested NY-23 race shows that the 5,335-vote lead once enjoyed by Rep.-for-now Bill Owens, the Democrat, has narrowed to about 3,000 with another 10,000 absentee ballot uncounted.

    Owens, who was sworn in last week, was one of 220 Dems to vote give the majority a narrow victory on health care reform.

    Yes there are still a lot of Absentee Ballots not counted yet. Hoffman did concede too quickly. Lets see what happens. It could get interesting.

    Rule One: Count Every Vote
    posted by John Nichols on 12/30/2004 @ 11:20am

    Politics is a game played by rules. And the most important rule regarding close elections is that you don't win by being conciliatory during the recount process. Indeed, the only way a candidate who trails on election night ends up taking the oath of office is by refusing to concede and then confidently demanding that every vote be counted -- even when the opposition, the media and the courts turn against you. "

    Hoffman must concede!!

    How can the Dems call the Conservative Party their third Column in the RNC if Hoffman refuses to concede?

    My gosh--you really think the conservative party is legitimate don't you? After all the MSM and liberal press that was thrown to Hoffman? Come on!!
