New York Primary Results

September 10, 2014

As expected, incumbent Andrew Cuomo won renomination, defeating Zephyr Teachout with about 62% of the vote to her 34%.   While a blowout at first glance, the result was far narrower than anticipated.   Teachout won the vote in some 20 counties, including Albany - home to the state capitol.    Cuomo should win reelection against Republican Rob Astorino this November.

Nominees for the Congressional races for the state's 27 districts had previously been chosen.  Approxmiately 1/4 of these elections should be competitive in November.   The seats of 17 Democrats and 3 Republicans are seen as safe.    To review these races, or to locate elected officials for any address in the country, check out our Who Represents Me feature.
