Incumbent Democrat Anthony Brindisi was initially declared the winner. The Hon. Scott J. Delconte, an Independent, was assigned to the case.

Ultimately, Tenney won the vote count, and on February 5, 2021, Judge Delconte granted Plaintiff’s Motion Seeking Certification of the Election, thereby denying Respondent Brindisi’s Motion to Stay Certification.
Outcome: The Plaintiff won.
