(Updated) RESULTS: Cameron Topples Otis for Assembly, Bowman Upsets Engel in House 16th

UPDATED: Assemblyman Steve Otis said Wednesday morning “this is far from over” as only about 25% of the votes have been counted due to 10,000+ absentee ballots that won’t be counted until the first week of July. A further statement is coming. MyRye.com will carry any further statements from Otis and Cameron and continue to track the results.

There are multiple reports of long lines and people having to vote hours after the polls closed last night (if you are in line by 9pm, they must let you vote).

Out of all that mess has come some upsets, based on Westchester Board of Elections unofficial tally as of 7am Wednesday morning.

NY STATE ASSEMBLY 91st District

For the New York State Assembly 91st District Democratic primary, challenger, Rye resident and head of the local Democratic committee Meg Cameron has toppled incumbent and former Rye Mayor Steve Otis. The primary winner almost certainly wins the seat in the fall, as there is no one running on the Republican ticket.

CONGRESSIONAL District 16 Dem primary

For the Congressional District 16 Democratic primary, challenger Jamaal Bowman, an educator, has up longtime incumbent Elliot Engel. Bowman spoke at the recent Black Lives Matter march in Rye. Like the Cameron-Otis State race, this is another big challenger upset of an incumbent sitting in a solidly Democratic district. The primary winner almost certainly wins the seat in the fall.

CONGRESSIONAL District 17 Dem primary

For the Congressional District 17 Democratic primary, Mondaire Jones will take it. This seat is being vacated by longtime Congresswoman Nita Lowey. Local Rye resident and County Legislator Catherine Parker made a run at the seat. She ultimately dropped out and endorsed Jones. Parker still captured 3% of the vote. The primary winner almost certainly wins the seat in the fall.
