Andrew Cuomo defended his seat as governor of New York against challenger Robert Astorino. Cuomo received 54 percent of the vote to Astorino’s 41 percent, pulling 1,918,744 democratic votes to Astorino’s Republican 1,442,655, according to The Associated Press.
Cuomo, a Democrat elected as governor in 2010, has committed his term to restoring people’s trust in government and protecting the property taxpayers of New York. In his previous term, he brought national reform to the loan industry and uncovered corruption in the state of New York.
Astorino, a Republican serving as Westchester County executive in New York State, wanted to reform the budgets, taxes, job plans and education in the state. Astorino pledged to lower property taxes and reduce overall spending in New York State.
Cuomo’s next term begins Jan. 7, 2015.
