With Mike McGinn victorious in Seattle, the only election on my radar from Tuesday that's still undecided is the race for county executive in Nassau County, New York. New numbers in that contest make it more likely that Republicans will pull a big upset of the Democratic incumbent, Tom Suozzi. Long Island Press has the latest:
After the first day of recounting votes from Election Day, Nassau County Executive GOP candidate Ed Mangano leads incumbent Tom Suozzi by 24 votes.
According to sources the votes counted were from the 14th Legislative District, where Democratic Legislator Dave Mejias is also hoping the recount puts him on top of his challenger Republican Joe Belesi, Long Beach and most of Suozzi's hometown of Glen Cove.
Once the machines are examined, absentee ballots will be counted. GOP sources said that with Suozzi being behind even 24 votes after his hometown Glen Cove was recounted could foretell a Republican victory. The absentee ballots are expected to tilt towards the GOP.
