The final House Race from the 2010 Midterm Elections has been called for incumbent Democrat Rep. Tim Bishop in New York’s 1st Congressional District. Bishop triumphed over GOP challenger Randy Altschuler, who conceded defeat yesterday.

That leaves the final GOP net gain in the 2010 Midterm House Elections at +63. We had projected a 70-seat gain, missing it by seven.

ROLL CALL: 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. . . . .

Final Uncalled House Race Goes to the Democrats; Final GOP Net Gain in 2010 Midterms is +63

The only remaining uncalled House race from the 2010 Midterm Elections appears to be headed for a Democrat victory. Incumbent Democrat Rep. Tim Bishop now has a 271-vote lead over GOP challenger Randy Altschuler in New York’s 1st Congressional District. A county judge is going over about 1,500 challenged ballots to come to a final tally. But the trend is certainly in Bishop’s favor. He has called on Altschuler to concede, but so far, he has refused to do so.

Republicans have already picked up 63-seats in the 2010 Midterms, and that looks like it will be the final number.

Update on Uncalled House Races: Only NY-1 Remains – Appears Headed for Dem Victory

And then there was one! Just one uncalled House Race remains from the 2010 Midterm Elections – New York’s 1st Congressional District. California-CD11 has been declared for Democrat incumbent Rep. Jerry McNerney over GOP challenger David Harmer. That leaves the GOP net gain at +63 for the moment.

In the one remaining race – NY-1, Democrat Rep. Tim Bishop now holds a 235-vote lead over GOP challenger Randy Altschuler. Up until a few days ago, Altschuler had been clinging to a slight lead, but has now fallen behind. This one appears headed to court to decide some contested ballots before it is over.

Update on Uncalled House Races: And Then There was One – CA11 Goes to the Dems; NY1 Remains

Two of the four remaining races from the 2010 U.S. House Elections were called today, with the Democrats holding one race, and the GOP picking up another – bringing their net gain to +63.

The Democrats managed to hold California-CD20, with incumbent Jim Costa barely holding on against Republican Andy Vidak.

But the GOP has won the New York 25th Congressional District, where incumbent Democrat Rep. Dan Maffei has been defeated by Republican Ann Marie Buerkle.

This leaves only two races still outstanding – California-11 (Incumbent Democrat Jerry McNerney is leading), and New York-1, where Republican Randy Altschuler has a razor thin lead (15-votes at last report!) on incumbent Dem Rep. Tim Bishop.

Update on Uncalled House Races: CA-20 Goes to Dems; NY-25 Goes to GOP; Net Gain for GOP at +63

As we approach Thanksgiving Week, there are still four 2010 Midterm U.S. House Races that remain uncalled. The GOP is holding at a net gain of +62 seats in the House, and lead in two of the remaining four races. However, in one of those races where the GOP leads, it has dwindled to only 30-votes. Here is the status of the remaining races:

Races Still Uncalled: NY-1, NY-25, CA-11, CA-20

Republicans Lead:

NY-1 = Republican Randy Altschuler leads incumbent Dem Rep. Tim Bishop. However, Altschuler’s lead is now down to just 30-votes with some absentee votes still remaining to be counted.

NY-25 = The GOP’s Ann Marie Buerkle continues to lead incumbent Dem Rep. Dan Maffei, but now by just 259-votes. There are still some absentee ballots to be counted.

Democrats Lead:

CA-11 = Incumbent Democrat Rep. Jerry McNerney leads Republican David Harmer by 1,700 votes. Despite the size of the deficit, Harmer has not yet conceded.

CA-20 = Incumbent Dem Rep. Jim Costa holds a lead of 2,422 votes over Republican Andy Vidak. Vidak has not conceded.

Update on Uncalled House Races: GOP Still at +62; Lead in Two of Remaining Four Races

Republicans have claimed another House seat in the 2010 Midterm Elections. Incumbent Democrat Rep. Melissa Bean conceded tonight to Republican Joe Walsh in the Illinois 8th Congressional District:

POLITICO: Illinois Democratic Rep. Melissa Bean has conceded to GOP challenger Joe Walsh, handing Republicans another victory in a race that stretched two weeks beyond Election Day.

Bean, a third-term congresswoman, phoned Walsh late Tuesday to congratulate him after final vote totals showed the Republican with a 291-vote plurality. Local election officials earlier in the day completed their tally of absentee and provisional votes in Lake, Cook and McHenry counties. . . . Read More

Walsh’s victory brings the GOP Net Gain in the House to +62, with four uncalled races remaining. The GOP leads in two of those remaining four races. It appears the GOP is headed for a +64 final net gain, six less than what we projected at +70. That’s still an amazing total!

Remaining Uncalled Races: NY-1, NY-25, CA-11, CA-20. Republicans lead in NY-1 and NY-25.

Update on Uncalled House Races: GOP Takes IL-8; GOP Net Gain at +62

Here is an update on the now five House races that remain uncalled from the Midterm Elections. The GOP currently has a +61 net gain in seats, with the potential for it to wind up at +64, since they lead in three of the remaining five races.

We are down to five because Republican Andy Barr decided to concede defeat to incumbent Democrat Rep. Ben Chandler in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District. He was trailing by over 600 votes and did not look like he would be able to overcome that margin.

Here are the remaining five uncalled races:

NY-1

The GOP’s Randy Altschuler has a 383-vote lead over incumbent Democrat Rep. Tim Bishop. Bishop’s camp is calling for a full recount.

NY-25

Republican Ann Marie Buerkle now holds a 711-vote lead over incumbent Democrat Rep. Dan Maffei. Reports indicate there are about 9,000 absentee ballots yet to be counted next week.

IL-8

Republican Joe Walsh leads incumbent Democrat Melissa Bean by 250-votes. That is down from a 347-vote lead yesterday. Most votes have apparently been counted. Bean still refusing to concede.

CA-11

Democrat Rep. Jerry McNerney leads Republican David Harmer. Some votes still uncounted. But McNerney looks like the eventual winner. Harmer refusing to concede.

CA-20

Democrat Rep. Jim Costa leads Republican Andy Vidak by 1200 votes with a few thousand votes still outstanding.

Nancy Pelosi says the Democrats did not lose the election because of her, instead she blames the high unemployment rate. Pelosi claims she was targeted by Republicans because of her effectiveness in fighting “special interest in Washington DC.”

“The reason the election results are what they are is because we have nine and a half percent unemployment in our country. We didn’t lose the election because of me.”

Here is an update on the six House races that remain uncalled from the Midterm Elections. The GOP currently has a +61 net gain in seats, with the potential for it to wind up at +64, since they lead in three of the remaining six races:

NY-1

The GOP’s Randy Altschuler has a 383-vote lead over incumbent Democrat Rep. Tim Bishop. Bishop’s camp reportedly pushing for a recount.

NY-25

Republican Ann Marie Buerkle holds a 687-vote lead over incumbent Democrat Rep. Dan Maffei. Reports indicate there are about 8,000 absentee ballots yet to be counted next week.

IL-8

Republican Joe Walsh leads incumbent Democrat Melissa Bean by 347-votes. Most votes have apparently been counted. Bean still refusing to concede.

KY-6

Incumbent Democrat Rep. Ben Chandler leads Republican Andy Barr by 649 votes. Chandler has declared victory.

CA-11

Democrat Rep. Jerry McNerney leads Republican David Harmer. Some votes still uncounted. But McNerney looks like the eventual winner. Harmer refusing to concede.

CA-20

Democrat Rep. Jim Costa leads Republican Andy Vidak by 1200 votes with a few thousand votes still outstanding.

Update on Uncalled House Races: Six Still Out, GOP Leads in Three – GOP +64 Likely Final Net Gain

Six House Races remain uncalled tonight, after the Washington 2nd Congressional District was called today for the Democrat. That leaves the GOP still with a +61 net gain for the 2010 Midterm Elections in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The six remaining races are: CA-11, CA-20, IL-8, KY-6, NY-1, NY-25.

Of those six races, the GOP leads in four: CA-20, IL-8, NY-1, NY-25. It does not look good for Republican Andy Vidak to maintain his slim lead in CA-20. That leaves three additional likely pickups for the GOP. If they win all three, it would leave the GOP with a final net gain of +64.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews seems surprised that the “targeting” of Nancy Pelosi worked, even in some local races, because he believes that “a lot of people never heard of her.” Both of Matthews’ guests disagreed, pointing out polling that reveals 90+% of people knew who she was and that she was “deeply unpopular.”

Chris Matthews Seems Surprised That Targeting Nancy Pelosi Worked Because ‘A Lot of People Never Heard of Her’ – Video

Here is video of Democrat House Minority (soon to be!) Whip Jim Clyburn actually telling the Morning Joe crew on MSNBC that Democrats believe their huge Midterm Election losses “had nothing to do with Nancy Pelosi” or her leadership. Mark Halperin was just incredulous, even asking at the end of the segment, “nothing” – “zero?” Clyburn refused to answer, and after a rather long, awkward pause, Joe Scarborough answered for Clyburn – “No.”

The Democrats want to blame their losses on the economy alone. They can’t bring themselves to face the possibility that Americans have fundamentally rejected their far-Left agenda. That’s okay. Keep pursuing your “Progressive” dream. If you do, more losses will be headed your way in 2012.

Here is video of George Will on ABC News’ “This Week” Sunday, where he said the Democrats and President Obama are trying to pass off their huge Midterm losses to an inability to properly communicate their message. In their view, Will said, it has nothing to do with their policies.

Let them keep thinking that. It had everything to do with their policies! But it appears they are not listening to the American people once again, just as they refused to hear the will of the people all through their drive to ram ObamaCare into law.

Here is video of the great Bill Bennett, former Secretary of Education under Ronald Reagan, interviewing Rep.-Elect Sean Duffy, who won Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District Seat in this year’s Midterm Elections. This is the seat vacated by retiring Democrat Rep. David Obey. Duffy won by a 52%-44% margin over Democrat Julie Lassa. It is great to hear the resolve in Duffy’s voice that he, and other newly elected Republicans, are going to Washington to stand on the same principles they ran on. Bennett closed by telling Duffy that “power does not always corrupt absolutely,” as many people often say. He told Duffy it does not have to be that way.

It will be interesting to watch and see how this new class of Representatives do.

Here is audio of Rush Limbaugh yesterday summing up the results of the 2010 Midterm Elections as the American People using their “middle finger” to scratch at Obama. Limbaugh was referencing Obama’s passive-aggressive habit of using his middle finger during speeches to scratch his nose or face at the very moment he is mentioning political opponents. Rush says: “Barack Obama is not the only person who can scratch his nose with his middle finger.”

Below is video showing several occasions when Obama used the “middle finger” scratch:
