Congratulations to Nicole Malliotakis on winning the GOP primary for New York’s 11th congressional district.
Nicole Malliotakis wins GOP primary, will take on Rep. Max Rose in general election
Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis easily won her Republican primary for Congress Tuesday night and is ready to take on first-term Democratic Rep. Max Rose in what is expected to be one of the most closely watched House elections in the country.
More conservative than the rest of New York City, the 11th congressional district that encompasses Staten Island and southern Brooklyn is considered a swing seat.
Malliotakis declared victory after early returns showed her leading challenger Joe Caldarera by 40 points.
Malliotakis, first elected to the Assembly in 2010, was the GOP candidate for mayor in 2017. While Democratic incumbent Bill de Blasio defeated her citywide, Malliotakis garnered an impressive 70 percent of the vote in her home borough of Staten Island.
