Venditto-Brooks Senate Race Headed To Court As Brooks Takes Lead

In Newsday, Robert Brodsky updates: “Democrat John Brooks emerged Wednesday with a narrow 41-vote lead over incumbent GOP State Sen. Michael Venditto as the count of more than 8,000 paper ballots ended in the 8th Senate District, election officials said.”

In a separate statement, Nassau County Democratic Chair Jay Jacobs has already asked that Brooks be declared the winner: “I urge the Board of Elections to move swiftly to certify the results so that the people of the South Shore in Eastern Nassau and Western Suffolk are properly represented in Albany.  The time for campaigning and politics is over, and it is now time to govern. “
