WASHINGTON (WKBW) — The winner of the New York 27th Congressional District special election is now official, as Republican Chris Jacobs will be sworn in to the House of Representatives Tuesday.

According to the New York State Board Of Elections website, Jacobs received just over 67 percent of the vote.

He's expected to be sworn in at 10 a.m.

Meanwhile, Jacobs' Democratic opponent Nate McMurray still has an opportunity to win the seat in a few months.

Jacobs and McMurray will face off again this November to represent the 27th District.

McMurray is expected to hold a press conference at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning regarding the special election at Atwater Park in Canandaigua.
