Democrats across the state are celebrating a number of victories.

Besides unseating the Republican majority in the state Senate, Governor Andrew Cuomo, Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, and state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli won their re-election bids, alongside the history-making Attorney General-elect, Letitia James.

And on the Congressional level, political newcomers in Staten Island and the Hudson Valley won their respective hotly contested battles.

Geoff Berman is the Executive Director of the New York State Democratic Committee.
