The first-term Dem had trailed GOP challenger Mark Szuszkiewicz by 2,822 votes in the machine count on election night — 17,852 to 15,030 — in the typically blue 46th Assembly District, which takes in the southern Brooklyn neighborhoods of Sea Gate and Coney Island and parts of Brighton Beach, Gravesend and Bay Ridge.
