As of 12 p.m. Wednesday, Tenney has 61% of the vote to Fratto's 39%, with 496 of 541 precincts reporting, according to WENY's Primary Election Tracker.

"I am grateful and humbled by the outpouring of support from the voters of NY-24 tonight," said Tenney in a statement. "This landslide victory proves that voters are united behind our aggressive advocacy on behalf of the hard working people of NY-24."

New York's 24th Congressional District was redrawn by state lawmakers this year, which expanded the boundaries of the district to include northern Steuben and Schuyler Counties.
