2014 U.S. Senate Elections

Flag of New York.png
The 25th Congressional District of New York held an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Rep. Louise Slaughter (D) defeated Mark Assini (R) in the general election.

Assini did not concede to Slaughter until eight days after the election.[4] 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.[4]

Despite Assini's loss, the fact that only 869 votes separated the two candidates was a shocking turn of events after various publications, such as The Cook Political Report, FairVote's Monopoly Politics and Sabato's Crystal Ball, all rated the race as solidly Democratic and non-competitive.[6][7][8]
