Another Republican woman has successfully flipped a blue seat red.
Democrat incumbent lawmaker Max Rose has conceded to Republican Nicole Malliotakis in NY’s 11th District.
Rose said “As we continue to count every ballot and are on track to dramatically narrow the gap by tens of thousands of votes to a 4-5 point margin, it is now clear that we will fall short of 50.1%.”
Nicole Malliotakis tweeted today “I received a gracious phone call from Rep. Max Rose today conceding the election. I want to thank him for his service to our nation in both the military and in Congress. We agreed to work together on a seamless transition to best serve our constituents.”
She added “I thank my family, friends and supporters for their hard work and commitment to our campaign. Time to get to work!”
