Results continue to roll in from the Republican primary in the 99th Assembly District, and challenger Steve Katz has widened his lead.
Ahead by 241 votes Wednesday with all but five Westchester districts reporting, he is now up by 253 votes. One district still remains untallied. According to the Westchester County Board of Elections, the missing districts were from all three towns in the county’s portion of the district.
Though Katz was ready to declare victory Tuesday night, the party’s nominee, Jim Borkowski, said he would hold out until all the votes were tallied.
Either way, Borkowski will remain in the race on the Conservative line in November. Katz has the Independence line. Attorney Brendan Tully of Yorktown is the Democrat in the race. The 99th covers seven towns in northern Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties.
