I thank the people of New York’s 18th Congressional District for their continued trust. It is the honor of my life to represent Hudson Valley families in Congress. While it will take time to count the absentee ballots, it is clear that once they are counted our margin of victory will only increase. I also thank my opponents, Chele Farley and Scott Smith. It takes courage and commitment to run for a congressional seat, especially in these unprecedented times.”
