Challenger Waldo Cabrera failed to unseat incumbent Democratic Assemblyman Philip Ramos (D- 6th District), after all the votes were counted Tuesday.
While Cabrera, 41, had the support of Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy, Ramos was backed by Gov. David Paterson and Sen. Hillary Clinton. Ramos first won the newly created Brentwood seat in 2002.
Ramos won with 70 percent of the vote. He credited his win with old-fashioned campaigning, footwork and providing good leadership to his constituents throughout his term.
Ramos told News 12 Long Island that his constituents can expect to see a continuation of downtown redevelopment in places like Brentwood, Bay Shore and Central Islip as well as his other policies. He also says he?ll try to provide taxpayer relief to those in his district.
Republicans do not have a candidate on the ballot for November, so Ramos will be unopposed.
