WHITE PLAINS — Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino came out to cheers and applause at the Crown Plaza Tuesday night after Democratic rival George Latimer was declared the winner. Astorino said his thanks to all of the people who supported him in his race for a third term as county executive.

"Serving the people of Westchester County, where I have been, where I was born and raised, spent my entire life, now raising my family has been one of the greatest privileges of my life. And tonight I thank not just Republicans, but also Democrats and independents who have voted for me," Astorino told supporters.

The race between George Latimer and Robert Astorino was the key race to watch in Westchester County. Polls showed the election as a statistical dead heat. Ultimately, Republican incumbent Astorino came up short against Latimer.

At the end of his speech, Astorino said he looks forward to continuing a friendship with Sen. Latimer and looks forward to a smooth transition of administrations in January.
