Republican Claudia Tenney is vying to reclaim her seat in Congress from U.S. Rep. Anthony Brindisi, the Democrat, in a district that stretches from Lake Ontario to the Pennsylvania border, east of Syracuse. 

She had a lead of more than 28,000 votes on Nov. 3, but absentee ballots have highly favored Brindisi.
