Hochul wins with a 5.6% margin over the Republican challenger
Full statement from Zeldin:
“I would like to congratulate New York Governor Kathy Hochul on her election to a full four year term.“This race was a once in a generation campaign, with a very close margin in the bluest of blue states. The unrelenting passion and hard work of our grassroots volunteers and supporters made this incredibly close race possible and helped us win at least 49 of New York’s 62 counties. Republicans, Democrats and Independents united as New Yorkers, pouring their heart and soul into this campaign. “Those controlling Albany should take note. New Yorkers of all walks of life are sick of the attacks on their wallets, their safety, their freedoms and the quality of their kids’ education and are hitting their breaking point, as proven by these results. As they take office in January, Governor Kathy Hochul and those controlling Albany must address the grave concerns voiced by the voters. While this campaign has come to a close, the rescue mission to Save Our State continues.”
Sitting Congressman Lee Zeldin had great support in Allegany and Steuben Counties, winning by a wide margin over Hochul.
