Republican Lee Zeldin of Shirley ousted six-term incumbent Congressman Tim Bishop (D-Southampton), 55 to 45 percent. Anthony Palumbo easily beat Tom Schiliro in the 2nd AD, winning 63 percent of the votes cast. See full election night rundown.
Synopsis of contests in the local races for Assembly, State Senate and Suffolk comptroller, plus explanation of the ballot propositions before voters Nov. 4.
Total spending in the hotly contested Bishop-Zeldin race approached $15 million as of month's end, making it one of the most expensive House contests in the US, according to data released by the Federal Elections Commission on Nov. 1.
In My Opinion
Assembly candidate Tom Schiliro responds to incumbent's letter about 'playing politics with women's rights'.
Republican incumbent Anthony Palumbo will meet challenger Tom Schiliro in the first debate of the campaign tonight at Polish Hall in Riverhead, beginning at 7 p.m.
