As of June 24th, 2020 at 10am EST, Congresswoman Clarke is leading the polls with 62.3% of the vote
“Last night, the people of the 9th district of New York made their voices heard by turning out and voting. While we still must take into account the number of absentee ballots that must be counted, I am confident that the results will be in my favor and I am more motivated than ever to fight for my community in Washington.
In that spirit, this week I will be going back to work. While my campaign remains on the ground to ensure that every eligible voter has been granted an opportunity to vote, I will return to Washington to vote on a groundbreaking police reform bill this week followed by laying the foundation for the recovery with a new green infrastructure package.
I want to thank all of my constituents, both those that voted for me and those that went in another direction. Regardless of the outcome, I hope that I have served you well during my time in Washington. If given the opportunity to return, I will do everything in my power to ensure that every constituent of the 9th District feels like they have a representative they can believe in.”
