Republican Congressional candidate Claudia Tenney is declaring victory in the race for the 22nd District... but several legal challenges remain before her spot is secured.
In a statement, Tenney said that she has secured enough of a lead over Democrat Anthony Brindisi. She also accused Brindisi's legal team of refusing to accept the outcome of their race. Her comments follow a request from Brindisi's team on Monday to have a hand audit of all votes in Oneida County. Arguments for that audit will be held later this week.
