Why is it such a close call for Dem Congressman Tim Bishop? (and other Suffolk County results)

11/6/2010 early morning update: Recanvas of machines shows that Altschuler (not Bishop) is actually ahead by 400 votes so far…
Story: here.

To find a list of Suffolk County election results, go to the Board of Elections website: here.

For NY statewide and NY Congress results (including for Suffolk County districts), you can go to The Washington Post electoral database: here.

On Long Island, the 1st District Congressional race between incumbent, Democratic Congressperson Tim Bishop, and Republican challenger Randy Altschuler is very close, and hasn’t been called yet. It need not be this way. Tim Bishop has a constituency of progressives and peace activists in Suffolk County who constantly appeal to him to be a stronger voice for peace and justice. Though, Tim Bishop just loiters in the center of the political spectrum with his Democratic cohorts. Bishop has voted for war funding. There is a list of his key votes: here.

The Washington Post reports, with 99% of districts reporting, that Tim Bishop has 51% and Randy Altschuler has 49%. There is about a 3,000 vote spread, and there are 9,000 absentee ballots to be counted. (See story and figures at The Examiner).

Ian Wilder says, “The most amusing thing about this race is that, oddly, Randy Altschuler was registered as a Green Party member for a short time, and the Green Party has gotten a lot of publicity over that situation.”

The Green Party did not endorse any candidate in this race. The Green Party did not run any candidate in this or any other Suffolk Congressional race, largely because of ballot access hurdles. The landscape will look different, now that the Green Party has earned automatic ballot status with their 50,0o0 plus votes for Governor.
