Mark Assini was a 2014 Republican and Conservative Party candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 25th Congressional District of New York.[1] He ran unopposed for both nominations in the primary on June 24, 2014.[2] Assini was defeated by incumbent Rep. Louise Slaughter (D) in the general election on November 4, 2014. With less than 1,000 votes separating the two candidates, Assini did not concede the race until eight days after the election.[3]

In January 2015, Assini announced that he planned to run for the U.S. House again in 2016 after narrowly losing to incumbent Rep. Louise Slaughter (D) in 2014. Assini stated, "Really, my heart is set on serving in congress...I think i have some great ideas to offer to the people of this district and the country. I would really like to see some of those ideas put into fruition."[4]

Assini ran in the 2014 election for the U.S. House to represent New York's 25th District. Assini ran unopposed for the Republican and Conservative Party nominations in the primary on June 24, 2014, but lost to incumbent Rep. Louise Slaughter (D) in the general election. The general election took place November 4, 2014.

Assini did not concede to Slaughter until eight days after the election.[3] With all precincts reporting, but before all absentee and affidavit ballots were counted, Slaughter had 93,053 votes to Assini's 92,471. According to two County Board of Elections commissioners, there were still around 2,000 affidavit ballots and 1,300 absentee ballots left to be counted, leaving a slim possibility that Assini could have caught up. Assini said that he would not concede until all votes had been accounted for, stating, "In all fairness to the voters, you should let the votes be counted."[5] After many of the additional ballots were counted on November 12, Slaughter had pulled ahead slightly, 96,800 to 95,931, and Assini called Slaughter to congratulate her on her victory.[3]
