Democratic hopeful Max Rose has conceded to Republican incumbent Nicole Malliotakis in the contentious congressional race in NY-11, New York City’s only swing district. With 90% of the vote counted as of 9:50 p.m., Malliotakis has scooped up more than 62% of votes compared to Rose’s 36%, according to unofficial Board of Elections results.

“While tonight’s outcome is certainly not what we hoped for in this party and as proud Americans, we respect the outcomes of elections,” Rose said at his election night watch party on Staten Island after he called Malliotakis to concede.
