Addabbo leads Republican challenger in re-election bid for eighth term in Senate


State Senator Joseph Addabbo is leading Republican challenger Danniel Maio in his re-election bid for an eighth term in the upper chamber.

Addabbo led with 55.47% of the vote (28,681 votes) as of Wednesday morning, according to unofficial results from the city’s Board of Elections.

This campaign was different after the New York Redistricting Commission redrew his district further north to include Richmond Hill, Middle Village, Forest Hills, Ozone Park and parts of other neighborhoods.
