May 03, 2018 7:30 am

Patricia Doxsey is reporting for the Daily Freeman Democrat Aidan O'Connor has reduced Republican Chris Tague's lead, but the 102nd Assembly District special election remains too close to call. With absentee ballots counted in five of the district's seven counties, Tague had 8,711 votes to O’Connor’s 8,489 votes, a margin of 222. Third-party candidate Wes Laraway was far behind with 1,818 votes. Absentee ballots remain to be counted in Columbia and Schoharie counties. Columbia will count May 7, Schoharie on May 8. On election night, April 24, Tague led O'Connor by 288 votes. The 102nd Assembly District includes all of Greene and Schoharie counties; the town of Saugerties in Ulster County; the towns of Stockport and Stuyvesant in Columbia County; and parts of Otsego, Delaware and Albany counties. The winner of the special election will serve out the remainder of Republican Pete Lopez’s two-year term and will have to run again in November if he wants to keep the seat.
