Gillibrand May Have Bested Schumer’s 71% Record

1

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is the state’s junior senator, but she appears to have outdone New York’s senior Sen. Charles Schumer for the highest percentage of electoral victory in modern New York history.

Schumer had the record for a statewide victory, when he got 71 percent of the vote in 2004 against little-known GOP Assemblyman Howard Mills.

Gillibrand may have beat him Tuesday.

The Associated Press today reported that with 97 percent of precincts reporting, Gillibrand had 72 percent of the vote against Republican Wendy Long, who garnered 27 percent of the vote.

Schumer won by a slightly wider margin in 2004: 71 percent to 25 percent, but Gillibrand may squeaked out a larger percentage of the overall vote.

In 2006, Eliot Spitzer was gunning for Schumer’s record against Republican John Faso: He got nearly 70 percent of the vote. In 2010, Gov. Andrew Cuomo got 63 percent of the vote.

On Tuesday, President Obama won New York 63 percent to 36 percent over Mitt Romney.

    In the US we have OUR President Obama for a welcome 2nd term as proof that the US taxpaying, hard working, citizens do understand between 2 choices so different as we had on Nov 6.

    The results of Nov 6 are proof that the US citizens DO NOT WANT layers of billionaires, mostly hidden, and some of them not even US citizens from foreign power bases, buying our elections with horrible and blatantly false TV and radio ads.

    President Obama and the Democrats raised about $100 million from grassroots donations that averaged about $35 from people who struggle to feed their families, pay their bills and get to work each day all across the US. They are not hidden billionaires or casino owners who should heed the message on Nov 6 2012.

    We, the US citizens demand government by representatives who are honest, have good backgrounds with a history of actually working for good results FOR THE CITIZENS, and who will work with other political parties once elected to ACTUALLY DO THE WORK of the CITIZENS.

    We DO NOT want representatives who speak of COOPERATION but then secretly meet in the basement and vow to do everything to unseat the other party’s person.

    This is the overriding message that all parties need to understand !!
