New York: Buerkle Leads Maffei by 659 Votes

In a stunning reversal from election night, Republican Ann Marie Buerkle surged ahead of U.S. Rep. Dan Maffei by 659 votes Wednesday in the 25th Congressional District race after Wayne County reported its unofficial returns.
Buerkle began the day trailing Maffei by about 5,600 votes, but she took the lead after a convincing victory in Wayne County, the final county in the four-county district to report its results. Buerkle trounced Maffei in the rural Republican county, 15,429 (63 percent) to 9,191 (37 percent), according to returns Wayne County released at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday — more than 20 hours after polls closed.
