DEBRIEF: Leslie Danks Burke says there are enough votes to cut deficit in 58th District (podcast)

On Wednesday, Leslie Danks Burke said that she was not conceding in the State Senate race shaping up in the 58th District. It includes a chunk of the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes.

After Election Day there were more than 33,000 ballots to be counted.

Democrats outnumber Republicans in the absentee ballot category by a two-to-one margin, and with the challenger facing a 20,000 vote deficit — absentees could be a deciding factor.

It’s not a lock, but FingerLakes1.com spoke with the Democrat as her team waits for absentee ballots to be counted next week.
