Miracle Comeback: Ann Marie Buerkle Now Has Slim Lead in NY-25

Posted on | November 3, 2010 | 3 Comments

Oh, my goodness. This was a Republican candidate I covered during my road trip with Da Tech Guy, but I’d written off this district as lost last night. Incumbent Democrat Rep. Dan Maffei had already declared victory.

But today Left Coast Rebel proclaimed the good news: Ann Marie Buerkle has come back to a 659-vote lead, thanks to late returns from Wayne County.

Absentee ballots remain to be counted, so say a prayer.

I’m a “Road Man for the Lords of Karma,” and the karmic wheel may be turning against Dan Maffei.

    What Sam said. She has to lead beyond the number of ballots some Democrat operatives can “find” in the trunks of their cars.
