UPDATE: Corfield awaiting absentee ballot results

In the closely watched LD 16 contest, Assemblywoman Donna Simon (R-16) leads Democratic challenger Marie Corfield by 712 votes.

That’s without absentee ballots.

Asked if Corfield is still refusing to concede, Somerset County Vice Chairman Zenon Christodoulou said, “yes, for good reason, we think. Democrats did very well in her Somerset towns.”

"This meeting is entirely off the record. Until somebody leaks it."
