Incumbent Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) bested Democratic challenger Martha Robertson ’75 in the race for a seat in New York’s 23rd Congressional district Tuesday night.
Reed claimed approximately 62.4 percent of the total votes counted at 1 a.m. Wednesday, defeating Robertson in a margin significantly larger than the 52-48 margin he eked against Ithacan Nate Shinagawa ’05 M.A. ’09 in 2012.
