Simmons-Deely race still up in air

It's been almost a week since Election Day and one local race still doesn't have an official winner.

Republican incumbent Justin Simmons is still waiting to officially hear if he'll hold on to his 131st District State House Seat.

 He's being challenged by Democrat Kevin Deely.

 Simmons' camp says they have won the election but Deely has yet to concede.

Election officials  say they are still counting absentee ballots and they hope to announce a winner by Wednesday.  

The 131st district  includes parts of Lehigh and Northampton counties.
