Mangano Leads Suozzi At End Of Recount

Nassau Republican Legis. Ed Mangano leads incumbent Democratic County Executive Tom Suozzi by 377 votes at the end of a historic recount for Nassau’s top-elected position, according to the final, unofficial tally figures from the county Board of Elections.

The closing numbers: Mangano, 122,471; Suozzi, 122,094.

Now the battle goes to the courts, where New York State Supreme Court Justice Edward McCarty will decide about 500 ballots that had been challenged during the process. Board of Elections officials would then certify a winner.



Mangano-Suozzi Race Update

Nassau Republican Legis. Ed Mangano’s lead against Democratic Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi has narrowed to just 122 votes following the end of counting on Nov. 23, according to the latest ballot figures from the county Board of Elections. The latest swing reflects ballots counted from New York State Assembly District 13, known as a Democratic stronghold. That district includes Plainview, Woodbury, Old Bethpage and Glen Cove, where Suozzi served consecutive terms as mayor and his cousin recently won re-election as such. It’s also Suozzi’s hometown.
