The Democratic candidate for the state House in the 109th District – Ed Giannattasio – passed away on Monday. He was 64 years old.
He had a recent recurrence of multiple myeloma.
Giannattasio is on the ballot against Republican Robert Leadbeter and Libertarian Thomas Anderson.
Should Giannattasio prevail, a special election would be called in Columbia County to fill the vacant House seat.
