Race Tied in Livingston County DA Republican Primary
The race for the Livingston County District Attorney is on hold until at least Wednesday.
Candidates Eric Schiener and Steve Sessler were tied coming out of the primary vote. There were still several absentee ballots in question. A judge ruled Friday three could be counted.
Sessler ended up with a one vote lead.
The final ballot unsealed Monday was a vote for Schiener, which put them back at a tie.
Committee members were expected to vote for one of the two men Monday night, but that was put on hold when Sessler filed an injunctioning questioning the valididty of some of the absentee ballots.
Regardless of what happens tonight, Sessler will still be on the ballot on the Conservative line.
"The Republicans within this county have let their voices be heard. The Republican Committee is or should be a reflection of the voters. I expect it will be a very interesting balloting or meeting tonight," said Schiener.
"I wouldn't begrudge anyone for going and reevaluating tonight. I've been running a clean campaign and playing by the rules every step of the way. When I started this in March, I've always said that if I didn't have the backing of the Republican Committee and the Republicans in this county, I'm done. The campaign will cease," Sessler said.
