Republican Claudia Tenney has once again taken the lead by 12 votes against Democrat incumbent lawmaker Anthony Brindisi in a nail biter House Race in NY’s 22nd district.
Per Josh Rosenblatt:
NEW: The Herkimer County BOE has apparently revised its final, unofficial count. @claudiatenney (R) nets 35 votes,
To my understanding, Herkimer had problems with their vote count and simply made some basic math and counting errors the first time around.
When I called the county’s attorney to confirm this new information, he replied, “No comment, no comment, no comment.” #NY22
Dave Wasserman of the Cook Report called the update “Whiplash.”
He added “now it’s Claudia Tenney (R) back ahead of Rep. Anthony Brindisi (D) by 12 votes in #NY22 after Herkimer Co. revises its count. Legal fight far from over.”
Tenney now leads in the betting market of PredictIt. If she holds on for the win, she will have flipped another blue seat red.
Republicans have already added 11 seats, not counting Tenney’s possible win if she holds on.
