The gubernatorial race will get a lot of attention, though most of the intrigue will probably turn out to be over Governor Andrew Cuomo’s margin of victory and what the race says about his 2016 presidential chances. In 2010, Cuomo defeated Carl Paladino, with Cuomo receiving 63% of the vote to Paladino’s 33%. While Paladino may challenge Cuomo again in 2014, other Republican contenders may emerge. Rumored candidates for the GOP nomination include Paladino, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, and Donald Trump.
New York State Senators
In 2014, New York State will again elect the members of its state legislature, including all 150 members of the New York State Assembly (66 of whom represent parts of New York City), and all 63 members of the New York State Senate (27 of whom represent parts of New York City). In most cases, incumbents are running and quite likely to win, though there will be several competitive races where incumbents will face significant challengers as well as numerous open seats in both houses.
Additional vacancies in the NYS Senate could occur if Mayor Bill de Blasio appoints sitting members to his administration. State Senator Eric Adams (SD20) vacated his seat in becoming the new Brooklyn Borough President and Charles Fuschillo’s 8th district seat, on Long Island, is also currently vacant.
History of New York. Information that every New York Election Candidates for US Governor Should Know:
The first native New Yorkers were the Lenape, an Algonquin people who hunted, fished and farmed in the area between the Delaware and Hudson rivers. Europeans began to explore the region at the beginning of the 16th centuryâ€“among the first was Giovanni da Verrazzano, an Italian who sailed up and down the Atlantic coast in search of a route to Asiaâ€“but none settled there until 1624. That year, the Dutch West India Company sent some 30 families to live and work in a tiny settlement on “Nutten Island” (today’s Governors Island) that they called New Amsterdam. In 1626, the settlement’s governor general, Peter Minuit, purchased the much larger Manhattan Island from the natives for 60 guilders in trade goods such as tools, farming equipment, cloth and wampum (shell beads). Fewer than 300 people lived in New Amsterdam when the settlement moved to Manhattan. But it grew quickly, and in 1760 the city (now called New York City; population 18,000) surpassed Boston to become the second-largest city in the American colonies. Fifty years later, with a population 202,589, it became the largest city in the Western hemisphere. Today, more than 8 million people live in the city’s five boroughs.
