Liz Benjamin has the latest on the Nassau nail-biter:
In a conference call with reporters this afternoon, Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi blamed his near-loss on a combination of voters' anti-incumbent sentiment and anger over property taxes.
Suozzi, who is hanging to his job by a 237-vote threat at the moment, said he intends to "stick this process out to the end."
He said he is "neither optimistic nor pessimistic," but did note there are some 12,000 paper ballots still out - from affidavit and emergency paper to absentees - and predicted the race could take up to a month to decide.
