Ritchie claims victory in Senate race

Listen to this story
Republican Patty Ritchie claimed victory early this morning in her race for state Senate against Democratic incumbent Darrel Aubertine.

It remains a tight race, with fewer than 4,000 votes separating the two candidates in the 48th District, spanning Jefferson, Oswego and western St Lawrence Counties. Ritchie took 52 percent of the vote, making it difficult for Aubertine to eke out a victory.

Jonathan Brown reports that--even as election officials prepare to count absentee ballots--Aubertine is refusing to concede.
