WASHINGTON (AP) - The Latest on U.S. Senate elections (all times local):
Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand of New York has defeated Republican challenger Chele Farley to win re-election to the U.S. Senate.
Gillibrand was heavily favored in Tuesday's election and has been talked about as a potential presidential candidate in 2020.
At a recent debate, Gillibrand pledged to serve her entire six-year Senate term.
Gillibrand was appointed in 2009 to the Senate seat vacated when Hillary Clinton was nominated as secretary of state.
She rose to prominence in the #MeToo movement last year as the first Democratic senator to call publicly for fellow Democratic Sen. Al Franken to resign amid sexual misconduct allegations.
She has also focused on sexual assault in the military and on college campuses.
Farley works in the financial services industry. She's never held elected office.
