GOP House candidate deemed winner of New York race, Dem rival ‘shocked and surprised’

Many in the Democratic Party — particularly House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — had high hopes ahead of November’s election that their congressional majority would increase substantially.

Those aspirations did not pan out, however, and if a recent court ruling stands, the GOP can expect to gain one more seat in the House.

“A proven fighter”

As Pelosi clings to a slim advantage over Republicans, a New York judge has ruled that Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi has been defeated by GOP challenger Claudia Tenney. According to Breitbart, Tenney, who previously served in the state legislature, was first elected to the U.S. House in 2016 only to be narrowly defeated by Brindisi two years later.

The news of her apparent victory elicited celebration from top officials in her party, including National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Emmer.

In a statement on the matter, Emmer wrote: “Congratulations to Claudia Tenney on her victory in New York’s 22nd District. Claudia is a proven fighter for upstate New York who will pick up right where she left off delivering bipartisan solutions for her district.”

He went on to add that he is “delighted to welcome Claudia back to Washington” and is looking forward to once again being her colleague on Capitol Hill.

Fellow Republican New York Rep. Elise Stefanik also recognized the good news, directing a congratulatory tweet at Tenney.

“A full audit and hand recount”

Declaring it the “year of the Republican Woman,” Stefanik wrote that all “legal votes have been counted” and Tenney is the winner. The congresswoman denounced what she deemed “desperate antics” by Democrats, noting that it has “been over two months” since the election and the time has come to certify Tenney’s win.

For his part, Brindisi was unsurprisingly less enthusiastic, even blaming supposed election irregularities for playing a role in the outcome.

“I am shocked and surprised by this decision because of the countless errors and discrepancies that have occurred throughout this initial count,” he wrote. “I believe a full audit and hand recount is the only way to resolve this case.”

The Democrat is planning to appeal the ruling. If he is unsuccessful, his party’s majority in the House will shrink to just nine members.

That development is sure to disappoint Pelosi, who predicted in October that Democrats “intend to hold the House and grow our numbers” in the election.

  2. Now send her bug eyed “ pet rat” shiff to California as the a.g., cut her numbers even more! Then the republicans can force votes their way in congress with a few defecting Dems! Wouldn’t that be lovely?

    1. Just send him home to California with no position and “no chance of reelection”, then Schifty is gone, Pelosi will follow when she sobers up enough to realize no one will be supporting her. Schumer is next with an Orange suit waiting for him in Cuba (share a cell with Shillary).

  3. Funny when the shoe is on the other foot how much the Democrats whine. Sit down and just shut up, nothing to see here. Isn’t that their usual slogan when it happens to Republicans .

  4. Just for giggles. 2022 … Trump runs for congress, wins along with many other conservatives for a landslide control of House (with Trump becoming speaker) and a few wins to control the senate. Next two years all of Trumps legislation are written while Biden etal are continuously tried for all their crimes. In addition, if the have enough for president veto over ride, then they clean voting laws etc.
    Oh how sweet a dream… or is it possible?

    1. If we keep praying it will all change back to the way it should have been in the first place. Trump is back in the White House and all the bad dems go down back in the muddy swamp. Let’s believe!!!!!!

  5. GOP House candidate deemed winner of New York race, Pelosi and Dem rival ‘shocked and surprised’ … But we had it all rigged, ballot harvesting, dead people, double/triple counting, Vote Machine tabulation crediting, Election Staff all nicely paid under the table……

  6. This is meant for ALL of God’s people, which includes all of We The People who pray and love our Almighty God! PLEASE KEEP PRAYING and we will see this evil election turned around.

    12 And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice. 13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 14 if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. 16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
