 The Tim Bishop-Randy Altschuler race is one of two unresolved Suffolk races. Bishop's attorney Thomas Garry said Thursday that he plans next week to ask a judge to order a hand recount. Altschuler's spokesman Rob Ryan said Thursday it was premature to discuss a hand recount until the audit is completed and absentee ballots are counted.

Both Bishop and Altschuler, who leads the race by 383 votes, will be in Washington next week.
