Via the comments, there was a big upset in the New York State assembly race in Long Island tonight:
Democrat Christine Pellegrino has defeated Republican Thomas Gargiulo in the District 9 State Assembly special election.
With all election districts reporting, unofficial results have Pellegrino ahead of Gargiulo by margins of 3,338-2,282 in Suffolk County and 2,252-1,767.
Trump won 60 percent of the vote in this district in 2016, and it’s a longtime Republican stronghold:
Typically, Democrats would hardly compete in the 9th, a horseshoe-shaped district on the Nassau-Suffolk county line that includes Massapequa, West Babylon, Babylon Village, West Islip and West Bay Shore.
More evidence that Dems need to compete EVERYWHERE over the next few years.
