The NYC Board of Elections (BOE) unofficial election results are in and here’s a comprehensive list of Congress and State Senate winners from this year’s August Primary.
Committee chair U.S. Rep Jerry Nadler beat out longtime colleague U.S. Rep Carolyn Maloney and attorney Suraj Patel to win in the newly configured 12th congressional district. Nadler scored 55.35% of the votes.
“Well New York…we did it,” said Nadler via tweet. “I’m so deeply grateful for your continued support and trust—I promise to keep on fighting for New Yorkers in Congress. Onwards!”
In a neck-and-neck race in the 10th congressional district, candidate Daniel Goldman declared himself the winner with 25.72% of the votes over Assemblymember Yuh-Line Niou who had 23.71% of the votes. Things are subject to change as more absentee ballots are counted.
A solid chunk of Black and Hispanic incumbents beat back incoming challengers to their seats throughout the congressional districts.
Bronx favorite U.S. Rep Jamaal Bowman in the 16th district held onto his seat with 91.51% of the votes. Likewise, the honorable U.S. Rep Hakeem Jeffries won his reelection with 86.83% of the votes in the 8th district. U.S. Rep Nydia Velazquez dominated with 83.14% of the votes in the 7th district and U.S. Rep Adriano Espaillat held onto his seat with 79.92% of the votes.
Meanwhile, former Congress member Max Rose is a step closer to getting his old congressional seat if he beats out Republican Nicole Malliotakis in the 11th district this November.
“I am so grateful to have earned the support of the people of the 11th Congressional District once again,” said Rose. “If we are going to build a safe and affordable Staten Island and Brooklyn then we need to turn the page on the broken politics that brought us to this moment.”
In the senate races, incumbents also took the cake.
Senator Kevin Parker won his long-held seat with 45.80% of the votes, Senator Jabari Brisport won his re-election with 70.23% of the votes, Senator Cordell Cleare scored a 69.70% victory, and longtime Senator Robert Jackson defeated his opponents with 57.90% of the votes.
“Four years ago, I helped lead a movement that shocked the state, wiped out the IDC, and brought real, progressive change in Albany. This year the special interests poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into this race to defeat me,” said Jackson in a statement. “ But we again proved that ordinary people working together driving a cause is still the most powerful force in our political process. We showed that grassroots organizing and small donations are not only the right way to win, but also the most effective way.”
