A surprise victor at the event was Kevin Thomas, who – despite modest campaign funds and little name recognition – strategically defeated Republican 29-year incumbent Senator Kemp Hannon. Chase will become the first Indian-American NYS senator.

Though there wasn’t a similar upset outcome for the nationally watched race between Republican 26-year incumbent Pete King and blue wave, pink wave challenger Liuba Grechen Shirley for NY Congressional District 2, it was a close one.

Each candidate was in the lead at some point, making for a night of emotional crests and troughs for Grechen Shirley’s volunteers and supporters there, many wearing Liuba campaign t-shirts and buttons.
