New Yorkers spit the bit on change

While the rest of the U.S. saw a red wave, New York could not join the party and elect a Republican governor.

Kathy Hochul won the election, making her the first woman to be elected to the post.

Republican challenger Lee Zeldin tried to close the gap with his tough on crime stance, but too many New Yorkers seem determined to live in a hell state where their own lives are in danger on a daily basis.

Zeldin has not yet conceded the race, but that is just a formality on Wednesday morning as more vote tallies come in.

In other races, New York Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis sailed to victory in a rematch against former Democratic Rep. Max Rose.

While the race was lost in New York, it is even worse in Pennsylvania where Democratic Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman defeated Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz in the Keystone State’s closely-watched Senate race.

Fetterman, who suffered a stroke and was unable to mount a defense in a debate, will represent Pennsylvania in the upper chamber.

Overall it appears that Republicans will control both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives for the next two years.
