NY State Congressional District 1 Decided

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.
