Is Democrat Nate McMurray closing in on Republican Congressman Chris Collins?
News10NBC just got a new update on the ballot count underway right now for the 27th Congressional District seat.
Collins is running for another term; McMurray wants to flip it blue.
The Orleans County Board of Elections started its count Thursday morning.
When the polls closed on election night, the incumbent led McMurray by almost 3,000 votes.
There were more than 14,000 outstanding votes left to be counted after the midterms.
The gap is now down to about 2,600.
We won't have the final numbers until next week when Livingston and Erie counties start their counts.
