Absentees won’t even begin to be counted until at least June 30.

U.S. Congressional District 22

Unofficial in-person only numbers from yesterday and the 10-day early voting period show former Rep. Claudia Tenney taking the District 22 Republican nod by a convincing margin over George Phillips — about 69-30% across the district and just a few points less than that in Cortland County (65-35%).

Another 15,000 district voters mailed in their ballots, which won’t be counted until after the June 30 deadline.

Despite that, Tenney claimed a victory last night in a statement saying her margin was too large for Phillips to overcome with absentees.

Phillips conceded this morning and thanked his supporters.

John Lemondes has an early 20% lead over Danny Fitzpatrick in the Republican primary for District 126, but with nearly 4,300 absentees still to be tallied – that’s more than the total number of people who voted in-person yesterday.
