Faced with insurmountable numbers, Republican Incumbent Congresswoman Claudia Tenney has conceded the 22nd district congressional race, telling local radio station, WUTQ, that she will help her rival in the bitter, hard-fought race, to transition to Washington.

"I haven't had a chance to speak to Anthony yet, of course I will, and my office will do everything we can to coordinate with him and make sure it's a smooth transition," said the Congresswoman.

Tenney said she doesn't take anything personally-especially politics. She hinted at potential, post-January career paths.

"Honestly, being U.S. Attorney would be really fun. I would love to do it. I'm not sure that's something that I would do. We'll see. I don't even know if there's an opening."

Brindisi said on Tuesday that he was looking forward to a smooth transition, with his former opponent's help.

Oneida County is still counting absentee and affadavit ballots. They plan to continue Monday. A large number of ballot challenges earlier in the week slowed the pace.
