New York Republican Wins Last Undecided House Race From November


Former Republican Representative Claudia Tenney beat Democrat Anthony Brindisi to reclaim her upstate New York seat, the Associated Press reported, citing a New York judge’s ruling.

Tenney’s victory further erodes the Democratic majority to 221-212 in the House of Representatives. That’s down from a 232-197 majority going into the election.

Tenney, who was ousted by Brindisi in 2018, prevailed after a judge reviewed disputed ballots in the district, which stretches from Lake Ontario to the Pennsylvania border. She campaigned on her ties to former President Donald Trump.
