Democrats not ready to concede 4th district seat

Although Democrat Bill Collins trailed by 1,021 votes as of last night, Democrats say that there may be enough uncounted mail-in ballots out there for him defeat Republican Domenick DiCicco in the 4th Legislative District.

Democratic Assembly Campaign Committee (DACC) Executive Director Mike Muller said that mail-in ballots counted since last night have given Collins another 440 votes.

"There are reports of 1,000 more that are still out there," he said.

"The one thing we don't want to do is assume [a loss]," said Muller. "There was such an effort vote-by-mail-wise that in that district alone there were something like 6,500 or 7,000 who applied for vote by mail applications, that we want to make sure we have a good, accurate count of everything that came in."

Incumbent Paul Moriarty (D-Washington Twp.) was the district's top vote getter.
