With 54 percent of voting precincts reporting, Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas declared victory over her challenger, Francis McQuade. At press time, Singas had collected nearly 73,000 votes to McQuade’s 53,000.
"This is really such a humbling experience for me," she said. "It's been my absolute honor to be your district attorney these past four years ... We run the office with one guiding principle: that we protect the people of Nassau County. If you hurt the people of Nassau County, then we will hold you accountable."
