UTICA, N.Y. – While Democrat Anthony Brindisi optimistically awaits the results of the 2020 race for the 22nd Congressional District seat, he says he has already filed to run again in 2022, regardless of this election’s outcome.
“I am hopeful that I will be certified the winner in this race for New York’s 22nd district,” Brindisi said. “And I will get right back to fighting for bipartisan solutions, making Congress work for working families, and standing up to anyone on behalf of this district. Serving this community is the honor of a lifetime. I look forward to being re-elected and stand ready to continue to serve this community for years to come.”
Brindisi and Republican challenger Claudia Tenney are still awaiting official results in the 2020 race, as Oswego County Supreme Court Justice Scott DelConte continues to review challenged ballots.
The current tally shows Tenney leading by 29 votes.
The 22nd District will have no representation in Congress until this race is decided.
