Upstate Senate race: Democrats claim they'll prevail

From state Senate Democratic campaign spokesman Gary Ginsburg, regarding GOP claims of victory for their candidate, Assemb. George Amedore:

“There are still hundreds of outstanding objections that have to be ruled on by the Appellate Court. These ballots include votes cast by election inspectors that voted early at the direction of both Republican and Democratic Election Commissioners and hundreds of affidavit ballots that were thrown out because of minor errors.”

“When all the votes are counted Cecilia Tkacyzk will be certified the winner of this election and will represent the residents of the 46th Senate District.”
