2020 Election Update, Results On Hold
As of Monday, the 2020 election results stood as:
Democrat Joe Biden had enough Electoral College votes to win and gave a victory speech Saturday night, along with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. President Donald Trump said he would challenge through the courts the ballot tally in some states.
Should the Democrats be declared the winners of the election, Biden becomes the first Syracuse University graduate to serve in the White House, while Harris becomes the first female vice president, as well as the first Black and Asian vice president.
In the 22nd Congressional District, former Congress-woman Claudia Tenney has a 30,000-vote lead over Democratic Congressman Anthony Brindisi.
In an almost dead heat, the 53rd state Senate District shows Republican challenger Sam Rodgers with a 19-vote margin over incumbent Rachel May.
It was the opposite in the 121st state Assembly District, where incumbent John Salka won decisively over Democrat Dan Buttermann and two other challengers.
Locally, Jeff Reynolds was elected supervisor in Sangerfield, Chris Steinmann and Jack Buschmann elected to the Marshall Town Board and Melanie O’Neil elected to the Kirkland Town Board.
