BETTER TO RUN AGAINST THE DEMOCRAT INCUMBENT NEXT YEAR (via Steve Jacobson):

Recanvassing shows NY-23 race tightens even as Rep. Bill Owens is sworn into House seat (Mark Weiner, 11/12/09, The Post-Standard)

Conservative Doug Hoffman conceded the race in the 23rd Congressional District last week after receiving two pieces of grim news for his campaign: He was down 5,335 votes with 93 percent of the vote counted on election night, and he had barely won his stronghold in Oswego County.

As it turns out, neither was true. [...]

Now a recanvassing in the 11-county district shows that Owens’ lead has narrowed to 3,026 votes over Hoffman, 66,698 to 63,672, according to the latest unofficial results from the state Board of Elections.
