Election 2014: Bob McCarthy offers insight into last night's results

The 2014 Election is in the books.  WBFO's Jay Moran talked with Buffalo News Political Reporter Bob McCarthy about the winners, losers and what to expect going forward.

Governor Cuomo had a 13-point victory across New York State and carried Erie County, but McCarthy believes Cuomo may be disappointed hinting the governor would have likely preferred bigger numbers.

In the 143rd State Assembly race, Angela Wozniak celebrated a win.  McCarthy says the Republican's win is a huge setback for the Democrats, noting the seat has been a stepping block in the past to higher elected positions.

Democrat Marc Panepinto is claiming victory in the 60th District State Senate seat.  McCarthy believes the results in the close three-way race will stand. McCarthy does credits incumbent Mark Grisanti, who lost the Republican primary to Kevin Stocker, but ran on the Independent Party line, for getting 29-percent of the vote.

Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 a.m.

Jay joined Buffalo Toronto Public Media in 2008 and has been local host for NPR's "Morning Edition" ever since. In June, 2022, he was named one of the co-hosts of WBFO's "Buffalo, What's Next."

A graduate of St. Mary's of the Lake School, St. Francis High School and Buffalo State College, Jay has worked most of his professional career in Buffalo. Outside of public media, he continues in longstanding roles as the public address announcer for the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League and as play-by-play voice of Canisius College basketball.
