State Senator Seward wins 14th term

By ANDREW DONOVAN

ONEONTA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Senator James Seward (R) overwhelmingly won his bid for reelection for New York State Senate.

Seward beat Democratic challenger Howard Leib.

Seward had nearly 70% of the vote with almost all of the precincts reporting Tuesday night.

Senator Seward addressed a crowd of supporters saying, “The resounding support from voters in both the primary and general election is extremely rewarding. Both victories confirm that my message - lower taxes, government spending restraint and attention to job creation - resonates with those who live and work in the 51st senate district.”

The 51st senate district is made up of parts of Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Herkimer, Otsego, Schoharie, Tompkins and Ulster Counties.
