This win is a milestone for Hochul and the Democratic Party. The 26th District congressional seat has not been held by a Democrat since the 1950's. Current numbers show Hochul with a narrow lead over Republican candidate Jane Corwin by nearly 5,000 votes. Tea Party candidate Jack Davis trails with nearly 10% of the overall vote.
Corwin has made her concession statement, but no statement has been issued from Davis. Hochul has not yet declared victory. Numbers are still being counted.
