Tiffany Caban concedes defeat in contested Queens DA race

Tiffany Cabán concedes defeat in contested Queens DA race

NEW YORK — A local Democratic primary for Queens district attorney that gained national attention finally reached its end Tuesday, with public defender Tiffany Cabán conceding to Queens Borough President Melinda Katz after a judicial review of disputed ballots didn't significantly alter Katz's slim lead.

Speaking to supporters at a Queens restaurant, Cabán described herself in the tightly contested race as a "queer Latina public defender; I don't look like our politicians, I don't sound like most of them, I've never campaigned before, but I decided to run."

Cabán was leading by more than 1,000 votes after the June 25 primary, but a manual recount led to Katz gaining a small lead.

The New York City Board of Elections declared Katz the official winner last week. Cabán went to court over ballots her campaign said had been improperly excluded. A judge's review didn't significantly impact the final decision, leading to the concession.
