Bedford Supervisor Chris Burdick has won the Democratic primary in the 93rd Assembly District, edging Chappaqua attorney Kristen Browde by 347 votes in the five-candidate race.
Late Saturday afternoon Browde announced on her Facebook page that she congratulated Burdick on his victory.
Burdick will be a prohibitive favorite in November to defeat John Nuculovic, who was easily defeated by outgoing Assemblyman David Buchwald in the predominantly Democratic district in 2018.
According to the unofficial tallies, Burdick received 34 percent of the votes (4,879) to Browde’s 31 percent (4,532). Following the early voting and in-person voting on June 23, Burdick led by 195 votes, and added to his margin after Westchester County Board of Elections finished counting the 8,767 absentee ballots.
The first two finishers in the race were followed by Jeremiah Frei-Pearson (2,748), Alex Roithmayr (1,211) and Mark Jaffe (1,078).
A message for Burdick late Saturday was not immediately returned.
Browde thanked her supporters for helping her in the race as well as her opponents.
“While this isn’t the result I’d hoped for, we all know that we have a lot more to do this election cycle…and every election cycle,” Browde stated. “And that we’re all in this together.”
