Losquadro: ‘I’m up by 892 votes’

11/06/2010 5:22 PM |

Assembly candidate Dan Losquadro said Saturday that he believes he has defeated incumbent Marc Alessi (D-Shoreham), after a Suffolk County Board of Elections recanvassing has him leading by nearly 900 votes.

Mr. Losquadro, who said he was cautiously optimistic he would win after the first count Tuesday night, said he is now “confident” he will be declared winner when the final results become official.

“I don’t know if his camp is ready to concede or not, but I’m confident it’s not going to change from here,” Mr. Losquadro said.

Preliminary Board of Elections results had Mr. Losquadro ahead by just 40 votes when the polls closed Tuesday. But the Republican candidate, who currently serves as minority leader in the Suffolk County Legislature,  said he picked up votes in several districts that had Mr. Alessi ahead by a wide margin.

“I knew my numbers were going to move,” he said. ” When you see some election districts that had 92 percent or 86 percent for Alessi, you figure you’ll gain some votes there. I didn’t see any anomalies like that where I was leading big.”

Mr. Alessi did not immediately return a call for comment.
