The 22nd district race might technically be too close to call, but you couldn't tell if you were at Anthony Brindisi's watch party on election night. 

"You all ready to go to Washington? Let's go to Washington D.C.," said Brindisi at his watch party.

Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is facing incumbent Republican Claudia Tenney for the 22nd Congressional District seat. 

Even though thousands of absentee ballots still need to be counted, Anthony Brindisi believes it will be a win for him.

"We want all the votes to be counted, but at the end of the day we're still pretty confident that things are gonna shake out in our direction," Brindisi said.

However, other side still has hope.

"I'm not gonna concede. There's gonna be a re-canvass," said Tenney at her election night watch party.

No matter what happens, and despite their differences and all the mudslinging that happened this election season, both sides want to move forward positively.

"We don't hold grudges," Tenney said. "I remember there's two great things that my dad said to me. Rule number one, never be a victim. Number two, never hold a grudge. We're not going to hold a grudge. We're going to continue to fight on."

"Her and I have been friendly. We served in the State Assembly together. We'll continue to be friendly after this, and I still want to work with her. Obviously she's held this role for the last two years. I'd like to have a very smooth transition as we come into the office," said Brindisi.

Results are not expected to be in for at least another week and a half. According to the Broome County Board of Elections, there are more than 4,000 absentee ballots returned, more than 1,500 affadavit ballots completed on Election Day, and military and overseas ballots have until November 19 to come in for Broome County.

Claudia Tenney was not available for comment on Wednesday.
