Gillibrand May Have Bested Schumer’s 71% Record

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.

[1]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.
