Cuomo, Gillibrand Win Election

Election 2018 Results: Republicans keep majority in the Senate, but Democrats are on track to take the House. Andrew Cuomo wins 3rd term as Governor, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand defeated Chele Farley.

Combined News Sources

Democrats were on track to seize control of the House and cut into Republican-held governorships on Tuesday, Politico is reporting.

Republican victories in the Senate appeared likely to stanch a broader Democratic wave, it said.

Initial results suggested a midterm repudiation of President Donald Trump and the conservative, anti-immigration agenda he ushered into Washington two years ago, likely accelerating the Democratic Partys reach into Americas critical suburbs on the cusp of the 2020 presidential campaign.

In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo won a third term by beating Republican Marc Molinaro.

The Democrat was seen from the start as the prohibitive favorite in the race, with big advantages in fundraising and name-recognition.

The victory would give Cuomo the same number of terms as his father, the late Gov. Mario Cuomo.

Cuomo has been talked about as a potential 2020 presidential candidate but said he would serve out his entire term if re-elected.

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, whose relationship with the pro-Israel community turned sour recently, defeated her Republican challenger Chele Farley to win re-election.

When asked about her presidential aspirations during a debate, Gillibrand, 51, said she will serve out her six-year Senate term.

New York Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also critical of Israel, won election to the House of Representatives in New Yorks 14th congressional district.

Several incumbent Democrats won their re-election campaigns for the U.S. House in New York:

Yvette Clarke won re-election to U.S. House in New Yorks 9th congressional district.

Nydia Velazquez won re-election to U.S. House in New Yorks 7th congressional district.

Hakeem Jeffries won re-election to U.S. House in New Yorks 8th congressional district.

Results from other New York races:

New York City Public Advocate Letitia Tish James, who took an early lead over Manhattan lawyer Keith Wofford, scored a historic win by being elected as the state's first black attorney general.

Thomas DiNapoli won New York Comptroller.

Diana Richardson was re-elected to New York State Assembly representing District 43.

Simcha Eichenstein won and will now be New York State Assemblyman for District 48, taking over the seat long held by Dov Hikind, who announced his retirement.

Simcha Felder was reelected to the New York State Senate for District 17.

Crown Heights has Zellnor Myrie as the new State Senator representing District 20 after he won the Democratic primary against incumbent Jesse Hamilton.

We could have much worse than cuomo. Now that gilibrand won, it is now ok for a democrat to be for BDS

Sad night for NY, and in many ways, for the Country
#5 is right. While I voted, I know many who are apathetic and didn't vote. It's a shame, as we deserve much better than Cuomo and Gillibrand. Thank God Ted Cruz won as did Ron Desantis, but those races were much closer than I would've like. And it's a shame Republicans lost the House, as we will now face 2 years of President Trump's agenda getting stymied. We can say goodbye to any further tax cuts.

Why are our CH Jewish leaders rubbing shoulders??
Its one thing the leaders did not push more people to vote.
Its another to pay too much attention and giving too much Respect and admiration to theses Low life Liberal Democrats.
Still cannot understand how a close minded Anti Israel critic Ocasio-Cortez Won the vote in the most Jewish City in the US.

anti-semitism cloaked in anti-zionism
naches report: two very anti-semitic muslim women
Gilibrand who loves BDS
and the entire Democratic party who now accept the likes of Elliison, DWS pro Iran Deal Debbie and others who would impose a settlement on Israel. Good Job Jews. NEBBICH

Besides photo ups do you see /hear from 'our' community 'leaders'
It is a big shame on them that besides an opportunity for a photo up, you never see or hear from them

H-shem must have a plan
I noticed there was no notice on col or anywhere else reminding the community that yesterday was voting day. Nevertheless there was a turn-out. We tried.

10 pushing the vote
They will never be able to get the vote out until they push for good candidates. It is a joke

The Rebbe Rashab and Frierdiker Rebbe and so many chassidim suffered so much in the hands of the Communists
The Rebbe Rashab and Frierdiker Rebbe and so many chassidim suffered so much in the hands of the Communists. I don't understand why the CHJCC doesn't repudiate the Left entirely and say - we want to have nothing to do with you or your "democratic socialist" agenda. Socialism is evil and our community council should have nothing to do with it; not pander to it.

Yeah # 15
I fully and totally agree with you, and could not have said it better myself.
And #5 Is quote right, as well.
In fact I pretty much agree all the comments here from #1 through #15, inclusive.

Although they were almost a lock to win, but for our community we should of stood up for Yiddishkeit and not endorse those people. . Sometimes for yiddishkeit we got to do the right thing
