What’s next in Tenney-Brindisi contest?

N.Y. (AP) — An undecided U.S. House race in central New York could drag on for weeks before all remaining ballots are tallied.

Democrat Anthony Brindisi was beating Republican U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney by fewer than 1,500 votes Wednesday.

Tenney has not conceded and her campaign manager notes that thousands of absentee ballots must still be counted.

Late Tuesday Brindisi predicted he would win the district, which includes the former manufacturing hubs of Binghamton and Utica as well as rolling hills dotted with dairy farms.

Tenney was an early supporter of President Donald Trump and her rhetoric bothered some moderates within her own party. But her policies remained popular in a district strongly backed Trump in 2016.

Brindisi, a state assemblyman, campaigned on calls for bipartisanship in Washington.
