New vote counts show Tenney leads by 12 votes in NY-22 congressional race

(WBNG) -- After a frantic day of legal filings, we now have a new up-to-date look at where we stand in the race for NY-22.

NYS Supreme Court Justice Scott DelConte ordered each of the 8 counties in the congressional district to submit a final, unofficial count to the court by 4pm Monday. After tallying those counts, 12 News has determined Claudia Tenney (R) has 155,492 votes, while Rep. Anthony Brindisi (D) has 155,480 votes.

This would give the challenger Tenney a 12 vote lead over the incumbent Brindisi.

Five of the counties provided the same counts as we've previously reported: Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Oneida and Tioga.

The other three counties (Herkimer, Madison, Oswego) all had some small revision to their previous numbers. The end result is a 25 vote swing in Tenney's favor.

In the above-linked legal filing, DelConte said he ordered the newly provided vote counts because of errors in Herkimer and Madison counties as well as concerns from both campaigns. In that same filing, he extended the deadlines by two business days for all future motions.

The next court appearance is scheduled for Monday, December 7. The counties still have to certify their results, and their could still be an eventual recount in the district, meaning the final difference between Tenney and Brindisi will likely be different than the current numbers.
