BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The Democratic primary race for Erie County Sheriff may end up resulting in calls for a recount.
With 95 percent of precincts reporting, the race between Richard Dobson and Bert Dunn remains incredibly tight, with Dobson receiving 51 percent of the votes.
But as results trickled in Tuesday night, Dobson slowly pulled ahead of Dunn. Whereas the candidates were once separated by around 400 votes, Dobson is now ahead of Dunn by 768 votes.
With his lead widening, the Buffalo News reports Dobson has declared victory. It is unknown when or if Dunn will concede the race, and it's possible he will demand a recount.
In the end, whichever candidate is determined to be the winner will go on to face incumbent Republican Sheriff Tim Howard.
