Cuomo Defeats Molinaro In NY Governor's Race:

(Albany, New York)  -- Andrew Cuomo is getting four more years as governor of New York.

The Democratic incumbent had a large advantage over his challenger Republican Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro. Cuomo spent much of the campaign criticizing President Trump in an effort to drive New Yorkers to the polls. It seemed to work as Cuomo ended up with 57 percent of the vote to 36 percent for Molinaro.

Molinaro says he has a lot more work to do in Dutchess County, but will also speak out on behalf of those who need a voice across the state of New York.

 In addition to the Governor’s race, Democrats swept all the statewide races in New York.  Kirsten Gillibrand was re-elected to the U.S. Senate, Letitia James wins as State Attorney General,  and Thomas Dinapoli is re-elected as State Comptroller.
