Goldman declares victory in race for NY-10, Niou just over 1,000 votes behind


Though the packed race for the 10th Congressional District seemed too close to call Tuesday night, Dan Goldman, lead attorney in the first impeachment of former President Donald Trump, declared victory over Chinatown Assemblymember Yuh-Line Niou shortly after 10:30 p.m. — with just over 1,000 votes separating the two candidates.

Just 1,131 votes separated Goldman and Niou as of 10:30 p.m., with Goldman taking nearly 25.7 percent of the vote to Niou’s 23.9, with 96 percent of scanners reporting. As of 11 p.m. that gap climbed slightly to 1,306 — Goldman with 16,686 votes and Niou with 15,380 and nearly 98 percent of scanners reporting.
