It's been a week since Election Day with Williams and Democrat Francis Conole tightly locked in a close race for the newly drawn district that encompasses all of Oneida, Madison and Onondaga counties, and a portion of Oswego county. As of this posting, the vote tallies on the New York State Board of Elections website have been unchanged for several days, despite ongoing counting of absentee and affidavit ballots in each of the four counties - 132,763 to 128,837 in favor of Williams.

As a percentage, that amounts to a percentage split of 49.7% of the vote for Williams and 48.2% for Conole.

WIBX 950 spoke to Williams campaign on Tuesday, with a campaign official saying Williams is now preparing to head to nation's capital for orientation.

Williams will be replacing retiring Republican John Katko, who had represented CNY in the House of Representatives since 2015. In the 2020 election, Conole was a candidate in what was then the 24th Congressional District, losing a Democrat Primary to Dana Balter - who went on to lose to Katko.
