As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Jose Peralta beat Monserratte in a landslide!
With 94 percent of the vote counted, unofficial returns from the overwhelmingly Democratic 13th State Senate District showed Mr. Peralta with 66 percent and Mr. Monserrate with 27 percent. The Republican candidate, Robert Beltrani, an administrative law judge, came in third with 7 percent.
“Tonight we put an end to dysfunction,” Mr. Peralta told a crowd at a restaurant in East Elmhurst. “Our nightmare is over.”
Thank you to everyone who made it out to Queens to canvass, thank you to those who phone banked, and a huge thank you to the amazing MYD Media team who put together some memorable moments for our enjoyment.
