Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman said on Glenn Beck's radio show Monday that he was "un-conceding" the special election in New York's 23rd district if possible.
While Hoffman's opponent, Democrat Bill Owens, has already been sworn into Congress, a routine review of the election has revealed Owen's marginal over Hoffman narrowing from 5,800 to 3,026 votes.
Hoffman, who conceded the special election under the impression he had incurred a significant loss to Owens on November 3, now wants to be rescind his forfeit.
When Hoffman was pushed by Beck if he was "officially un-conceding" the race, Hoffman responded, "If that's possible, yes."
While it is unlikely that Hoffman will be emerge victorious in the NY-23 race, he told Beck that he is optimistic on the outcome of the election.

First, un-concede (even in hyphenated form) isn't a word. Second, inventing a word from thin air won't a return seat make. Nice try sore loser! :)

I think that they need to count the votes to make sure that the constituency voice is being represented. I don't know how hopeful he should be, but what's the point of voting if our votes don't or might not count?
Frankly, it says a lot that he got as close as he did.
