I imagine that by this point, anybody who cares knows that Chris Collins defeated David Bellavia in the NY-27 GOP primary. I spent the evening with the Bellavia camp at the Clarion Hotel in Batavia. I'll have pictures and quotes later.
Meanwhile, here are the available results:
With 98 percent of the precincts reporting, it's Collins 10,124 votes (60 percent) to 6,720.
Erie County dictated the outcome of the race, with Collins winning 5,889 votes to 2,094. Bellavia won every other county except Niagara.
Bellavia took Genesee County 1,105 to 683.
Wyoming County hasn't reported yet, but in Orleans and Livingston, it was Bellavia 758 to 389 and 854 to 679.
In the section of the district that covers Monroe and Ontario counties, it was Bellavia 1,048 to 586.
UPDATE: Wyoming County, Bellavia 734 to 623.
