DeVolder won it by 6 points.

There are 6 districts in New York that Biden won but Magats were elected. I hope they get their shit together.

It should never have taken this long...he was trouble from Day One. Still, he won't go away quietly. Has he already been offered a book deal?

I remember when 'elected officials' would NOT have allowed that scumbag anywhere near the entrance door. Now it took almost a year to throw him out.
Shows how much they respect the job and the honor that should go with it.

And if he does get a 'book deal' - it'll be back against the wall at 'Goodwill' along with Empty Greene's latest 'top seller!'

I was amazed that he could even show his face in public, let alone be out there 'defending his actions' and casting judgment on those opposing him. He was amazing at being able to cast lies on top of lies - and keep a straight (sic!) face!

This quote sums up the Santos demise.

This is the worst day for George Santos since his mom fake-died in 9/11.

I thought Republicans had no line. It turns out they have a microscopic line somewhere.

Think. Again.

...I'm sure this is going to turn out in their favor somehow.

Decency and integrity had nothing to do with it.

And that several others voted present or didn’t vote at all (including AOC). It was a historic vote so I hope they had a good reason for not showing up.
