Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) declared victory in his bid to hold onto his Buffalo-area district, Roll Call reports.
Buffalo News: “The final tally means that barring any further action, Collins succeeded in preserving the 27th District for the GOP even after his Aug. 8 indictment on federal charges of insider trading. It also means that the 27th District, the most Republican of any district in New York State, remained in the Republican column by the slimmest of margins.”
Challenger Nate McMurray (D) tweeted to supporters: “Enough condolences guys. Cheer up! You’d think I was indicted and going to jail or something.”Save to Favorites
