Mangano's lead narrows over Suozzi

The latest count puts Tom Suozzi and challenger Ed Mangano even closer in the still-undetermined race for Nassau County executive.

As of Tuesday night, Mangano led Suozzi by 160 votes. Last week, officials started counting nearly 8,000 affidavit and absentee ballots.

Counters are also looking for discrepancies in the ballots. If an address or signature doesn?t match, the ballot will be tossed into an objection box. So far, hundreds have been set aside.

Both sides say they're trying to resolve many of the problems themselves, but the election will likely end up in court.
