Democratic U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand won the New York Senate seat against Republican opponent Wendy Long, international news sites reported on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.

Gillibrand won via landslide, getting 72% of the votes while Long got only 26.5%, according to reports.

“I can’t thank you enough for the honor and privilege of continuing to serve this state and to fight for New York families in the United States Senate,” Gillibrand reportedly said in her victory speech.

Gillibrand commended her opponent, Long, saying that it was the first time two women ran for a US Senate seat in New York.

Long is a New York City lawyer who was making her first run for the public office, reports said.
