Parlato concedes to Jacobs in GOP primary for 27th
Beth Parlato has conceded in the Republican Primary for the 27th Congressional District. She was among three candidates in the primary, along with Chris Jacobs and Stefan Mychajliw.
Jacobs has a big lead in the in-person voting in the district that covers eight counties. Parlato has the second most votes. Mychajliw acknowledged his defeat and congratulated Jacobs on Tuesday night.
Thousands of absentee ballots will be counted next week.
Parlato issued this statement at about 1 p.m. today:
“I got in this race to give every voter in NY-27 a choice, and that is exactly what we did,” she said. “Although not victorious, I am grateful for each and every vote, prayer and supporter. We ran a tough campaign, and I’m proud of all that were involved. I look forward to campaigning for President Trump as we fight harder than ever to protect our freedoms and conservative values.”
Parlato is backed by the Conservative Party and is on the ballot in November. Jacobs has the Republican and Independence Party lines. Nate McMurray, who is trailing in a special election against Jacobs, has the Democratic and Working Families lines in November.
