ONEONTA – Bob Fernandez won’t quit until the last ballot is counted.

“I’m not conceding anything,” the Republican who ran for sheriff with Democratic backing  said a few minutes ago.  “I feel pretty good right now.  We didn’t leave anything on the field.  I did well by my team and my people.”

Kim Muller, a Fernandez supporter and longtime pal of his wife, former county board chair Kathy Clark, said there are “hundreds of affidavits” and 1,800 absentee ballots still uncounted.
