  • With 96 percent of precincts reporting, Dan Maffei has a slight lead over challenger Ann Marie Buerkle in the race for the 25th Congressional District, but the race is too close to call.
    As of early Wednesday, Maffei had 51 percent of the vote; Buerkle had 49 percent. Election officials in Wayne County encountered difficulties reporting the election results Tuesday night, stalling the process. The work was to resume Wednesday.
    Maffei, a Democrat, is wrapping up his first term in Congress. Buerkle, a Republican, is a nurse and a political newcomer with tea party support.
    The 25th District includes Webster, parts of Irondequoit, parts of Penfield, all of Onondaga County, including the city of Syracuse, Wayne County, and northern Cayuga County.
