Incumbent Democrat Keeps N.Y. House Seat

November 20, 1994| Associated Press

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Rep. Maurice Hinchey emerged the winner Saturday by about 1,200 votes over Republican Robert Moppert in the 26th Congressional District.

Hinchey, a Democrat, got 95,389 votes to Moppert's 94,166, said Joe Laughney, Broome County deputy elections commissioner. The count from the Nov. 8 election was held up primarily by absentee ballots.

In Alaska, Democrat Tony Knowles declared victory as governor after a drawn-out count of ballots showed him ahead by 528 votes over Republican Jim Campbell. Only 217 absentee ballots from rural areas remained to be counted from the Nov. 8 election.

And in Connecticut, both sides in the nation's closest House race have asked the state Supreme Court to review the election.

Rep. Sam Gejdenson (D-Conn.) and Republican challenger Edward W. Munster filed separate motions Friday, each maintaining that he had lost votes in a recount, which left Gejdenson ahead by four votes out of nearly 160,000 cast.
