Council GOP notches one major win in Bronx election, fails to make net gain

Tuesday’s general election brought the quiet 2023 cycle to a close, with Republicans appearing to nab one decisive victory in the east Bronx and defending another seat in Queens, while Democrats fended off the GOP in two crucial southern Brooklyn races.

But even with the likely Bronx win and far-right Council Member Vickie Paladino looking to have successfully defended her eastern Queens district, the Republicans lost a seat in southern Brooklyn and failed to win another in the same area — according to unofficial results from the city Board of Elections (BOE).
