UTICA N.Y.-- The results of New York's 22nd District Congressional race will have to wait a little longer.

New York Supreme Court Judge Scott DelConte granted a temporary restraining order blocking Oneida County from certifying its election results pending further hearings. The stay is due to concerns that, if results were certified and a winner was seated in Congress, the New York Appellate Courts would be unable to rule on a winner if they found irregularities.

This came hours after Congressman Anthony Brindisi requested that Judge DelConte block certification of all the counties that make up the 22nd Congressional Distrtict, and order a hand recount of all ballots. He alleged "substantial errors and irregularities" in the counting of votes by voting machines compared to hand counts. DelConte's ruling today had nothing to do with Brindisi's challenge, which will continue to be argued in court Friday. The remaining counties were not stayed, meaning they can certify their results by tomorrow.

Brindisi lawyers say they will appeal the rulings of Judge DelConte pertaining to ballots to the Appellate Court. Former Congresswoman Claudia Tenney led by 122 votes coming into today, and claimed a net gain of four votes after several more ballots were canvassed today.
