BATTLE FOR THE 22NDPosted: Feb 5, 2021 / 06:43 AM EST / Updated: Feb 5, 2021 / 04:52 PM EST

(WSYR-TV) — Republican Claudia Tenney will be certified as the winner in New York State’s 22nd Congressional District race, defeating Democrat Anthony Brindisi.

State Supreme Court Judge Scott DelConte ruled Friday afternoon that Oneida County should certify its vote, which makes Tenney the winner by 109 votes.

Earlier this week, the Brindisi campaign requested a “stay,” arguing that a partial to full recount needed to be done before certification.Judge pauses finalizing NY-22 results with Tenney lead to consider Brindisi’s request for audit of votes 

The judge agreed to the “stay” on the certification, which prompted Friday’s hearing.

All other counties had already been allowed to certify.

According to the judge, certification of this vote does not prevent Brindisi from appealing the ruling to a higher court or the House of Representatives.
