Rep. Elise Stefanik, the No, 3 Republican in the House, lauded GOP victories across her state on Tuesday following “record” party victories in enclaves long held by Democrats.
“Congratulations to Republicans across New York and the North Country on their exciting and impressive victories tonight. Here in the North Country, Republicans won by record margins and flipped multiple Democrat-held seats,” she said in a statement.
The statement went on to list several GOP victories in North County:
Republican Danielle Fogel defeated former Far-Left Congressman Anthony Brindisi in a landslide in the race for New York Supreme Court in the Fifth Judicial District.
Republican Scott Ostrander overwhelmingly FLIPPED the town of Milton.
Andrew Moses FLIPPED the St. Lawrence County Family Court Judge seat in a LANDSLIDE.
Elise Stefanik endorsed Republican Mark Wright won the town of Ticonderoga.
Republican Ronnie Roberts FLIPPED the town of Colton.
Republican Norman Davis FLIPPED the town of Beekmantown with 60% of the vote.
All of Elise Stefanik’s endorsed candidates won in Jefferson County.
For her part, Stefanik, who replaced Trump critic Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming earlier this year, said Democratic policies on the local and national level were to blame for the party’s losses.
“This was a clear referendum on the disastrous ten months of Joe Biden’s administration and a Republican resurgence fueled by outrage after years of corrupt, Albany politicians destroying our state,” she noted.
“The strength of our grassroots support has never been stronger. The work to save New York started tonight with Republican victories up and down the ballot, and it will continue in 2022 when we retire Nancy Pelosi and finally take back the Governor’s mansion,” her statement continued.
The New York Republican lent her support and financial backing to “dozens” of local GOP candidates. Her office said she helped raise and donate more than $100,000 to state and local candidates in New York.
Meanwhile, in the New York City mayoral race, Democratic candidate and former NYPD captain Eric Adams trounced Guardian Angels founder and GOP contender Curtis Sliwa 66.5 percent to 28.8 percent, with the Republican winning only Staten Island while Adams the Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn, while being slightly less dominant in Queens. Adams becomes only the second black mayor in the city’s history.
In the Virginia gubernatorial race, first-time political candidate Glenn Youngkin became the first Republican to win a statewide office since 2009, beating former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe by roughly 2 points, 50-48 percent.
McAuliffe spend much of his campaign attempting to tie Youngkin to former President Donald Trump, who endorsed the businessman candidate but did not campaign with him, rather than focus on what policies he would pursue if he won. Youngkin, by comparison, focused on issues — especially education in pushing back on controversial materials and curriculum including critical race theory.
And in New Jersey, Democratic incumbent Gov. Phil Murphy, initially expected to sail to reelection, was behind GOP challenger Jack Ciattarelli by a slight margin as of Wednesday morning, with the race yet to be called.
“We’ve sent a message to the entire nation. This is what I love about this state: Every single time it’s gone too far off track, the people of this state have pushed, pulled and prodded it right back to where it needs to be,” Ciattarelli said in a statement.
