New York Special Election Results
Democrat Cordell Cleare will serve as the next New York State Senator for District 30.
Cleare defeated challenger Oz Sultan handily in the special election and will serve the remainder of the term set to expire at the end of 2022.
The state Senate seat was left vacant after Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin was tapped as Gov. Hochul’s lieutenant.
Yudelka Tapia ran unopposed in a special election to fill the District 86 Assembly seat left vacant when former Rep. Victor Pichardo resigned earlier this year.
Tapia will serve the remainder of the term ending in December 2022.
