One week after the Democratic primary, 23rd Congressional District candidate Max Della Pia conceded to Tracy Mitrano Tuesday. Mitrano will now face Republican incumbent Congressman Tom Reed in November.
Della Pia conceded as absentee ballots were being counted across the region. Following last Tuesday’s primary, Della Pia had a 26 vote lead over Mitrano in the contest that featured 5 candidates.
In a news release, Della Pia said even with the results not being certified until Thursday, he felt it was important to begin the work of uniting as a party to defeated Reed.
