DNC on New York Statewide Primary Elections

DNC Vice Chairs Grace Meng and Michael Blake issued the following joint statement on the results of tonight’s Democratic statewide primary races in New York:


“Congratulations to all of the Democratic candidates who won today’s primary races for statewide and local office in New York. Communities across the state are energized and organized to elect this exciting slate of candidates who will work tirelessly for the Empire State’s working families.


“New Yorkers know that Democrats have their backs while Republicans like GOP gubernatorial nominee Marcus Molinaro are running to support Trump’s tax scam that gives the ultra-wealthy and large corporations a tax cut at the expense of the middle class. Democrats are fighting to raise wages, invest in infrastructure and education, and expand access to affordable health care.


“New York voters share our values, and we look forward to continuing to partner with Democrats across the state as we work to elect Democrats up and down the ticket this November.”
