The 2010 House election concluded more than a month after Election Day as Republican Randy Altschuler conceded this morning to Rep. Tim Bishop (D) in New York’s 1st District.

With about 977 absentee ballots remaining uncounted, Bishop was leading Altschuler by more than 260 votes out of more than 194,000 cast.

Altschuler’s camp also announced that it is dropping its legal challenges regarding the remaining uncounted absentee ballots. Altschuler’s team had contended that many of the absentee ballots were invalid due to residency issues.
