Wilkerson Declared the Winner

Incumbent Dianne Wilkerson will likely face Republican Samiyah Diaz in the November general election for the Senate seat representing the Second Suffolk District.

City officials counted ballots yesterday from eight precincts that were left uncounted on the night of the Democratic primary Tuesday.

The newly counted votes put Wilkerson ahead by approximately seven hundred votes.

But her opponent is refusing to concede the race.
