In the final House seat to be settled in the 2020 election, former Republican Representative Claudia Tenney was declared the winner over Democrat Anthony Brindisi, reclaiming a seat she previously held in upstate New York. 

The decision came, according to the Associated Press, after a judge reviewed the disputed ballots.  

Tenney lost the seat to Brindisi in 2018, and campaigned in 2020 based on her ties to former President Trump.
