UTICA, N.Y. -- The winner of the Republican primary between David Gordon and Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente will face a challenge in November. This, after a judge ruled Mike Hennessy's name is back on the ballot.

The Democratic candidate in the race for county executive was removed from the ballot after 22 signatures on his petitions were called into question.

Hennessy testified in state Supreme Court Wednesday, along with several other witnesses including those who went door-to-door collecting the signatures on behalf of the candidate.

Judge David Murad ruled 29 signatures are valid putting him over the limit needed to run for county executive.

“Work on the Conservative line. Talking to people, and getting my message out, and making sure that people know I'm going to talk about his record, my ideas, and stay away from any rumors that are out there,” said Hennessy.

The primary for county executive will take place this June, and the general election is in November.
