Early polls gave Hochul a huge lead, but her challenger, Long Island Congressman Lee Zeldin, was able to close the gap leading up to election day.

Zeldin is looking to become New York's first Republican Governor since George Pataki.

It appears Hochul has won. She thanked her supporters and gave a victory speech last night. However, Zeldin has yet to concede.
