Republicans now +63 in House races

The Syracuse Post-Standard reports that incumbent Rep. Dan Maffei (D) conceded to Ann Marie Buerkle (R) in their still-undecided House race in Upstate New York.

Ann Marie Buerkle will be Syracuse's next representative in Congress, its first woman in the U.S. House.

U.S. Rep. Dan Maffei, the Democrat, called Buerkle today to concede, ending three weeks of ballot inspections, recounting and court wrangling.
