Congressman-elect Joseph Morelle is scheduled to be sworn in next week.
New York's 25th Congressional District will have representation for the first time since Congresswoman Louise Slaughter died in March.
Assembly Majority Leader Morelle won the special election and the seat over Republican Dr. Jim Maxwell on Tuesday.
Morelle beat Maxwell with 59-percent of the vote.
On Friday, Morelle's campaign told News10NBC he will be sworn in with new members of Congress Tuesday night at the U.S. Capitol.
