Clinton, Spitzer, Cuomo, and most incumbents (except, perhaps, Ada Simth) win.
The closest race in the primaries was actually in my district between incumbent John Sabini and NYC Councilmember Hiram Monserrate. Unfortunately, at the end of the day, Monserrate needed only an additional 109 more votes to win. According to NY1, Sabini won with 6,052 votes (50.9 of the vote) and Monserrate lost with 5,944 votes (49.1 of the vote). It is extremely disappointing but not unexpected. I just hope that Sabini gets the message and does more for immigrant communities.
UPDATE: On the New York 1 website, the margin of victory is reported to be 204 votes and Monserrate has vowed to ask for a recount that would include a tally of absentee votes as well.
