Last week, an acting NYS Supreme Court Justice in Steuben County ruled the newly drawn Congressional and Legislative districts in the state to be unconstitutional and must be redrawn immediately. But, after an appeal, everything is back in limbo.
People anticipating another rematch between Congresswoman Claudia Tenney and Congressman Anthony Brindisi can stop wondering if it will happen. Anthony Brindisi announced on Thursday he will not seek another term in Congress in 2022.
One thing is for sure in this extended election season, people around here seem to know exactly what's going between President Trump and President-elect Biden. When it comes to the race for the 22nd congressional district between Congressman Brindisi and former Rep. Claudia Tenney, "who's ahead," seems to be the most common question.
What started out as a 28,000 vote lead for Claudia Tenney over Rep. Anthony Brindisi after election night, is now almost a statistical tie. The counting of absentee ballots continued on Tuesday as Brindisi gained ground by a margin of better than 70-percent.
