Red Wave Rising: Republican Wallops Dem 2:1 in NY District With 20% More Dems Than Republicans

4 50 414

In another election that may signal a red wave coming in November, a Republican defeated a Democrat in a special election in a normally deep blue New York district.

During last week’s election, Republican Eric “Ari” Brown defeated Democrat David Lobl in the election held to fill the vacant Assembly seat representing southwest Nassau’s 20th District.

Congratulations to our new Assemblyman, Ari Brown!

It was reported that there weren’t enough outstanding absentee ballots for Democrat Lobl to recover the 2,254 votes he would need to overcome Brown’s lead.

Brown’s campaign is not quite over, though, as he will have to run for a full term of his own in November. But in the meantime, he will be filling out the term of Republican Melissa “Missy” Miller, who resigned to serve as a Hempstead Town Board councilwoman. Miller was the first Republican elected to the district in decades.

Another huge victory for New Yorkers. Congratulations to Assemblyman-Elect Ari Brown! #REDWAVE pic.twitter.com/uJ3KWGVnSw
