NYPost:

In a stunning turnabout, state Sen. Adriano Espaillat yesterday withdrew his concession in his bitter congressional primary election against Rep. Charles Rangel — after claiming he was the victim of voter suppression.



Espaillat, watching Rangel’s lead shrink as votes are counted, even demanded he be declared the winner and Democratic nominee for Congress in the 13th District, according to court papers.



“We really don’t know who won this race,” Espaillat told The Post yesterday, even as his court papers portrayed him as the victor.



“Every single vote must be counted. We cannot have a Florida-type situation in New York state,” he said during a press conference outside a Washington Heights senior center before the court proceeding.

I was stupid to concede early and give Rangel a leg up Casino67

It will be interesting to see how many votes Rangel gets to "win".

My "guess" here is that once all the actual votes are counted, the total number will exceed the population of said district by over 20%.

But that's the democrat way, dontchaknow!
