In a closely watched special election to replace former Rep. George Santos, voters in New York's 3rd District will decide who will complete the remaining 11 months of his unfinished term. The race is between Democrat Tom Suozzi and Republican Mazi Pilip, both vying for the opportunity to represent the district in Congress.
The competition is heating up as the candidates enter the final stretch of the campaign. Voter turnout is expected to be a critical factor in determining the outcome of this tight race. According to the final Emerson College Polling/PIX11/The Hill survey, the election is too close to call.
The special election, scheduled for February, has garnered significant attention both locally and nationally. It is seen as an important test for both parties, with Democrats hoping to maintain their hold on the seat and Republicans aiming to gain ground in the district.
