Court proceedings for the 22nd Congressional District race resumed on Monday.
State Supreme Court Justice in Oswego County, Scott DelConte, was supposed to begin ruling on challenged ballots at 9 a.m., however did not start until 2 p.m. because Oneida County Board of Elections officials are not done canvassing affidavit ballots and won't be done until sometime next week.
There are over 2,000 challenged ballots in the district, 1,700 of those are from Oneida County.
Justice DelConte did get through Oswego County's 20 challenged ballots on Monday. He did rule on some of them, but it was unclear what those rulings were. He also completed challenged ballots from Herkimer County and began his review of challenged ballots from Madison County. DelConte will start Tuesday morning with Madison County ballots.
After all the counties reported corrected vote totals, republican challenger Claudia Tenney leads incumbent democrat Anthony Brindisi by 19 votes, according to unofficial results.
Those vote totals are likely to change after Oneida County finishes their review of disputed ballots.
Once Justice DelConte rules on all the disputed ballots, the race might still not be over.
If one of the campaigns appeals the decision, it will be likely that the race will go into the new year without a congressional representative in the 22nd district.
