No new Kennedy-Grant totals coming soon

   No new updates are expected immediately in the tight Democratic primary race between incumbent Timothy M. Kennedy and challenger Betty Jean Grant, according to sources at the Erie County Board of Elections.

   The sources said elections officials were concentrating on tabulating Democratic committee races in time for the Saturday reorganization meeting of the Erie County Democratic Party, in which three men are vying to succeed Leonard R. Lenihan as chairman.

   The board said Tuesday that its latest count has Kennedy leading by 282 votes, which is seen as an insurmountable lead at this point.
