In New York, Westchester County voters chose to keep their county executive in office another four years.

Incumbent Republican Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino thanked his roomful of supporters for his decisive win.

Democratic challenger Noam Bramson, who surprised even Astorino with how early he conceded the race, addressed his supporters around 10:30 Tuesday night.

As of early Wednesday morning, with 81 percent of districts reporting, Astorino led Bramson 55 percent to 45 percent, with about 76,000 votes to Bramson’s close to 62,000 votes.
