Right now, News10NBC is working to find out if Nixon will still run on the Working Families Party line in the November election. As it stands now, her name will be on the ballot.

The former 'Sex and the City' star declined to give her post-primary plans in interviews Thursday.

As for Cuomo, he'll face Republican Marc Molinaro, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins, and Independent Stephanie Miner in the November general election.

Cuomo's running mate, Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, barely squeaked by her opponent Jumaane Williams with 53-percent of the vote.

Julie Killian is the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor and will run alongside Molinaro.

Now to a big upset in our area. The incumbent Republican for a state seat avoided our cameras following his big primary loss. 

Marjory Burns beat incumbent Joe Errigo 62-to-38-percent for the 133rd Assembly seat.

The district includes Livingston, Steuben, and Monroe counties. News10NBC tried to speak with Errigo but a spokesperson shut out the media as Errigo slipped out a back door.

His opponent was happy to talk.

"I think what the voters said is they really want someone who will be a voice for our community," said Majorie Byrnes. "Someone who will speak up on the Assembly floor. That's not afraid to grab a microphone and talk about the issues about the people who live in this district."

Burns will face Democrat Barbara Baer in the general election. 

In the race for the 136th Assembly seat, Democrat Jamie Romeo won a a three-way race with Todd Grady and Jaclyn Richard.

Joe Morelle, who left his seat to run for Congress, congratulated Romeo for her victory.

News10NBC spoke with Romeo about the win.

"The work is not done," Romeo said. "We still have an election in November that is very important. We have an important member of Congress we need to send (applause) and I know we have so many strong partners and government. I can't wait to get started."

Romeo is running unopposed in November.
