These results are obviously racist.
State Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries trounced City Councilman Charles Barron in a shwondown for Brooklyn’s 8th Congressional District.
With 54% of precincts reporting, the Associated Press deemed Jeffries the easy winner, 75% of the vote to Barron’s 25%.
“The political pundits said that this was going to be a close race, but that was before the people had spoken,” Jeffries told his supporters after hearing early results. “The people spoke with one loud voice and that’s why we’re going to Washington.”
Jeffries landed almost every major endorsement, winning the backing of Sen. Chuck Schumer, Gov. Cuomo and most Democratic bigwigs.
He also had the support of the Working Families Party.
Addressing his supporters, Barron called for a recount and said he would not be calling Jeffries to congratulate him on the win.
