The fate of the NY-22 candidates, 116th Congress Representative Anthony Brindisi (D-Utica) and former Rep. Claudia Tenney (R), continues to hang in political limbo. The judge presiding over the disputed election continues to pour through the more than 1,700 contested ballots that will determine the final outcome. After more than two months since the actual election, Ms. Tenney retains the lead (29 votes), and the fate of these contested ballots will determine the final outcome.
Lawyers for the candidates must submit their briefs prior to arguing orally before the judge on January 22nd. Even with a ruling, however, we are likely to see one or more recounts before this seat is ultimately filled.
