SOUTHAMPTON, NY (WCBS 880) – Three Long Island races remain too close to call some two weeks after Election Day.
WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reports
New York’s 1st Congressional District is getting the most attention, with Republican challenger Randy Altschuler holding a slim lead over incumbent Democrat Tim Bishop.
As Suffolk County continues to examine its voting machines for possible errors, Bishop this week is expected to formally seek a hand recount of all 185,000 ballots cast. Meanwhile, Altschuler is attending orientation for new members of Congress.
The other undecided races include the 1st District seat in the New York State Assembly seat (incumbent Democrat Marc Alessi vs. Republican challenger Dan Losquadro) and 7th District seat in the New York State Senate (incumbant Democrat Craig Johnson vs. Republican challenger Jack Martins). In the latter race, voting machines are being audited and absentee ballots still being counted.
