Jaclyn Richard, the president of Rochester Now, is also running for the seat. Her campaign manager filed a general objection against Wilt. They have until 5 p.m. on July 18 to file a specific objection. 

Richard's campaign manager issued the following statement to News10NBC:

"Robin Wilt was a resident of Washington State, where she voted, served on the local Democratic committee, and served as a delegate for Bernie Sanders. If she was really a resident of New York State all of that time, she broke Washington state election laws."

Wilt voted in Washington as recently as 2016.

News10NBC has reached out to Wilt's campaign, but have not heard back yet.
