Today, Claudia Tenney for Congress released the following statement on the 22nd District race for Congress:
“We’d like to thank the voters of this district, our supporters and volunteers for their hard work and dedication throughout this campaign. With over ten thousand absentee ballots left to count, this race is still too close to call. Over the next few days and weeks our team will participate in the re-canvass process and review the absentee ballots,” said Raychel Renna, campaign manager.
“As of this afternoon, there are nearly 12,000 absentee ballots and thousands of affidavit ballots still to be counted across the district. Just today, Broome County identified several hundred votes that were not counted last night bringing the margin separating the candidates to just 1,293 votes. This race remains too close to call. This race will be decided when all the votes have been counted, and we will continue to work with our legal team and the electoral boards in each county to ensure the votes are counted accurately and fairly,” said Tenney campaign manager Raychel Renna.
Over the next several days, local electoral boards will continue to receive returned absentee ballots and examine affidavit ballots before recanvassing next week and counting absentee ballots.
