It doesn’t appear that incumbent Republican State Senator Rich Funke will have opposition in the November election.
The New York State Court of Appeals has ruled that Funke’s potential Democratic challenger, Steve Glickman, is ineligible to be on the ballot due to issues involving the state’s five-year residency requirement.
The decision overturns a different ruling last week by the State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division.
The 55th State Senate District includes parts of Monroe and Ontario Counties.
Funke is running for a 2nd term.
