    The crowd at Lee Zeldin’s victory party erupts into cheers and chants his name as his victory is called. Peter King, the former New York congressman, briefly ascends the stage and says it’s a “great day for New York.” Zeldin is said to be on his way.

    A concession from Andrew Giuliani could be imminent. The announcer at his election night party says the candidate and his father, Rudolph Giuliani, will speak shortly. The announcer also mistakenly said the pair would talk about “Rudy’s campaign.”

    As Lee Zeldin’s lead picks up, so has the mood at his party on Long Island. The crowd is enjoying pretzels and hot dogs as Justin Timberlake blares on the speakers.

    Kathy Hochul takes the stage wearing suffragette white under the glass ceiling of this TriBeCa event space, and nods to the state’s first first gentleman, her husband, Bill.

    In his victory speech, Lt. Gov. Antonio Delgado says that if Democrats need a reminder of what’s at stake, they need look no further than the Supreme Court’s “disastrous” decision to take away a woman’s right to an abortion. “This is the fight of our lives,” Delgado said.

    Jeff Mays June 28, 2022

    The energy is sucked out of the room and the crowd thins a bit at Andrew Giuliani’s party as Lee Zeldin overtakes Giuliani in the Republican primary for governor with about a quarter of the vote reporting.

    Antonio Delgado, the lieutenant governor of New York, convincingly defeated Ana María Archila and Diana Reyna in a three-way Democratic primary, according to The Associated Press. Delgado’s victory is also a win for Gov. Kathy Hochul, who handpicked him as her running mate.

    Dana Rubinstein June 28, 2022

    For the first time tonight, the Hochul party breaks into applause as NY1 calls the lieutenant governor race for Delgado; Hochul’s win was apparently a given.

    Dana Rubinstein June 28, 2022

    Kathy Hochul has won the primary, and Mayor Eric Adams of New York has said his part, but Hochul has yet to take the stage — perhaps in deference to her running mate, Antonio Delgado, whose race has yet to be called.

    Dana Rubinstein June 28, 2022

    The New York State comptroller, Tom DiNapoli, just led a chant for Letitia James, the state attorney general who once wanted to be governor herself and never did endorse Hochul in the primary.

    Nicholas Fandos June 28, 2022

    In New York, we are still waiting on results from Long Island’s Nassau and Suffolk counties. These are the bases of both Democrat Tom Suozzi and Republican Lee Zeldin. They will need to run up big numbers there to win.

    Luis Ferré Sadurní June 28, 2022

    A lively band is playing some very loud cumbia at the election party in Brooklyn for Jumaane Williams and Ana María Archila, though the two running mates have not yet arrived, as early results show them trailing in New York City.

    Jesse McKinley June 28, 2022

    Andrew Giuliani showing strength in New York City in early returns, not a complete surprise considering his father’s run as mayor from 1994 to the end of 2001 (including the Sept. 11 attacks).

    Nicholas Fandos June 28, 2022

    Gov. Kathy Hochul’s supporters have good reason to celebrate. Early results from New York City show her with a very comfortable lead over her two Democratic challengers, Tom Suozzi and Jumaane Williams. The Republicans are running closer.

    Nick Corasaniti June 28, 2022

    With already 95 percent of the vote reporting in Mesa County, the home county of Tina Peters, Pam Anderson is in the lead by roughly 1,800 votes, or 5 percent.

    Jeff Mays June 28, 2022

    Crime and inflation are two issues that Republicans in New York believe will hurt Democrats in the general election in November. The strategy will be to link the Democratic nominee to President Biden and his low approval rating on issues like inflation.

    Jesse McKinley June 28, 2022

    For a sense of how dominant Democrats are in New York, where both parties are selecting nominees for governor tonight, consider that no Republican has won a statewide race in 20 years. The last winner? George Pataki, winning a third term as governor, in 2002.

    Campaign baseball caps in blue, white and neon yellow speckle the room as people trickle into the party for Lee Zeldin. MAGA red is notably absent.
