Dem Brindisi calls for 67 rejected ballots to be counted in NY race where he trails by 12

NY congressman Anthony Brindisi’s campaign is challenging over 60 rejected ballots in the nail biter NY-22 race where he trails Republican Claudia Tenney by a mere 12 votes.

Monday, Madison, Oswego and Herkimer Counties started reviewing disputed ballots.

Tenney also challenged six ballot rejections in Madison County

According to a report from Syracuse.com a state Supreme Court judge will decide which ballot challenges will prevail.

 

Last week, NY State Supreme Court Justice Scott DelConte rejected the argument from the Tenney campaign that election results should be certified as they stand.

Tenney told Fox and Friends “If the judge follows the legal process, I think we should prevail.”

She continued “but what’s happening now, it’s so close that Nancy Pelosi, the current House Speaker, has sent lawyers who are supposed to be from the House administration and they’re supposed to be in an observing role, not anything more than that, but it looks like they’re getting very aggressive.”
