In the important battleground of Staten Island, Republican Bob Helbock won the North Shore Civil Court judge seat, going red for the first time in 35 years. Staten Island City Councilman Joe Borelli ran a great race for Public Advocate and won his home borough overwhelmingly.
In the Hudson Valley, we had a big win in northern Westchester with the election of Matt Slater as Yorktown Supervisor, a sweep in Dutchess, including the resounding reelection of Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, and a sweep in Columbia County, including the election of a Republican District Attorney. As of right now, the results in Ulster County are too close to call, but we remain optimistic for a majority county legislature and district attorney victories.
In the Capital Region, we swept all four State Supreme Court races in the 4th judicial district and had many big wins in Saratoga County. We went on offense in Colonie, where our Republican challenger is locked in a dead heat with the incumbent Democrat, and we are awaiting the final results tally.
We continued our great Republican victories across Upstate with the resounding election of Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon, Onondaga DA and the Onondaga County Clerk. Oneida County Executive Tony Picente also cruised to victory and we elected a Republican super-majority in the Oneida County legislature. In the North Country, we flipped the Clinton County legislature red and in Franklin picked up another seat in the county legislature.
