The final certification of New York’s 22nd Congressional District is on hold for now.
New York State Supreme County Judge Scott Delconte has granted Anthony Brindisi’s request for a stay of the certification of the canvass of ballots in the race.
The judge’s ruling came at the end of a months-long legal battle over lawsuits filed by both Brindisi and Republican candidate Claudia Tenney.
An unofficial count has Tenney with a 122 vote lead after DelConte ruled on hundreds of contested ballots.
The temporary stay prevents the Oneida County Board of Election from certifying its results.
