We did it. We flipped a State Senate seat.
Our endorsed candidate, Michelle Hinchey, has won her race!
This race came down to about 2,500 votes in a district held by a conservative for 6 years. Our powerful team of volunteers made over 100,000 calls and sent 300,000 texts to elect Michelle.
Our victory was critical in winning a historic supermajority in the State Senate. This will give Democrats a veto-proof majority — giving them power to push everything from additional pandemic eviction protections to further taxing billionaires.
Together, we elected a candidate who stands up for immigrants, marches with us at Black Lives Matter protests, walks picket lines with workers, and knocks on doors to fight climate change. Together, we defeated a candidate who tried to divide us against each other, hoping that if we feared our neighbors we’d look the other way when they took away our healthcare and undermined our public services.
Together, we are building the movement we need to transform New York into a state that works for all of us.
