"Attorney General Andrew Cuomo (D) has won the race for New York Governor over Carl Paladino (R).
With 0% of precincts reporting, CNN projects that Cuomo is the winner.
Though the Tea Party-backed Paladino had some early momentum that helped him beat Rick Lazio in the September 14 Republican primary, his campaign has since been plagued by controversy and concerns about his temperament.
Paladino, a Buffalo businessman, first made a name for himself when he forwarded several racist and obscene emails. He has since suggested that New York should house welfare recipients in prison, and was one of the louder voices against the Cordoba House Islamic Center near Ground Zero."
