NY23 was conceded by the Conservative candidate, Doug Hoffman, on election night. He made the decision to concede based on the information that he had received: he was down 5,335 votes with 93% of the vote counted, and was only up 500 votes in his stronghold of Oswego County.
Turns out he was actually up 1,748 votes in Oswego, and trailed by only roughly 3,000 votes with 93% of the vote counted. And the absentee ballots that are still coming are expected to swing to Hoffman.
It should be noted, that liberal, socialist Democrat Bill Owens very well may still end up legitimately winning the election, but Democrats love to try to swing elections anyway they can. Remember the liberal MSM calling Florida in 2000 even though there were still precincts in Florida's panhandle open to voting? The effects of that have never been studied.
So Hoffman conceded on election night thinking he had no chance, and now he may still have had a chance over a week later. Tricky, tricky Democrats getting him to concede on election night.
