Jacobs: 'we did lose Craig Johnson'

Thursday, November 04, 2010 - 09:32 AM

State Democratic Party Chairman Jay Jacobs seems to have accepted the loss of a State Senator Craig Johnson's seat. Jacobs told Newsday:

"The fact that Carolyn McCarthy pushed back a significant challenge is very important. Yes, we did lose Craig Johnson, it looks like, though for that race we supplied volunteers and did everything requested. "

Johnson trails by about 415 votes, with 3,300 absentee ballots yet to be counted.
