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.
