Statement From Broome County Republican Chairman Bijoy Datta
“Tonight Broome County voters again made a clear choice. They overwhelmingly elected Republicans to offices large and small all over the County. Sheriff Harder won by a huge margin. We swept the two open Family Court Judge races. We extended our super-majority on the County Legislature. We held the Supervisor and Town Board seats in the Town of Union. And it appears that we won the open Vestal Town Board seat, though that will likely go to an absentee ballot count.
“In all, Republicans won 80% if the 115 seats that were up for election within Broome County this year. That’s staggering when you think about it – and it’s a reflection of the superior strategy and ground game that we’ve developed and implemented.”
“In the last few years, we’ve flipped seats from Democrat to Republican for Congress, County Executive, the Majority on the County Legislature, Binghamton Mayor, Johnson City Mayor, and more. Heading into 2015 and 2016, we’ll keep up our relentless pace, working hard to win every seat that comes up for election.”
