Democrats in the New York State Senate appear to have bolstered their super majority, claiming Monday that their candidate in Syracuse captured the party’s 43rd seat in the 63-seat chamber.
High school science teacher John Mannion declared victory over Republican Anni Renna in the 50th Senatorial District. Renna had no immediate comment.
“I am humbled to have earned the support of my constituents and honored to serve as the next representative for the 50th Senate District. This isn’t just a victory for my campaign, it’s a win for the hardworking residents of this community and for our entire region,” Mannion said in a statement.
Continuing a trend in other races, Mannion trailed Renna by seven percentage points in the machine count but pulled ahead of his opponent by winning the overwhelming majority of absentee ballots cast during the coronavirus pandemic.
The seat flips from Republican to Democrat. Mannion replaces former GOP state Sen. Bob Antonacci, who stepped down after being elected to a judgeship.
