Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney And Rebecca Seawright

Democratic Vice-Chair Trudy L. Mason & Carolyn Maloney

Carolyn Maloney And Gail Brewer

My favorite friend and Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney looked stunning at her victory party tonight. I just love this woman and her friends. You had Democratic Vice Chair Trudy L. Mason there, and New York's own  Rebecca Seawright who is heading to Albany to work for New Yorkers. Borough President of Manhattan Gale Arnot Brewer also was there to help celebrate.

I have never seen a election where my die hard Republican friends supported Democrats. But this was one election in New York City where they threw their support to Carolyn Maloney. They know and they understand that Carolyn Maloney works for everyone, not just her party. Congresswoman Maloney understands all the needs of New Yorkers.

Tonight Congresswoman Maloney had over 79% of the votes.Tonights votes were for all of New York and all the people.
