Final New York Congressional election result goes to Republican Williams

Nov 15, 2022 12:34 pm

Mark Weiner at Syracue.com reports that Republican Brandon Williams will win the 22nd Congressional District election in Central New York over Democrat Francis Conole. This is the last Congressional election to be called in New York, and means it is very likely that Republicans will control the House of Representatives when all the national election results are final. New York voters can partially take credit for turning over power to the Republicans with two Hudson Valley-based Congressional seats flipping from Democrats to Republicans. Democrat Josh Riley lost to Marc Molinaro in the 19th Congressional District, flipping a district previously represented by Democrat Antonio Delgado. And Sean Maloney, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair, lost to Republican Assemblyperson Mike Lawler in the 17th Congressional District. Republican Rep. John Katko retired from his 22nd District seat after voting to impeach former President Donald Trump and having little chance to win a primary election. New York's congressional delegation will now be 15 Democrats and 11 Republicans, the most seats the Republicans have held since 2001-2003. Read more about this story at Syracue.com reports.
