Joe Morelle wins race for 25th Congressional District


Joe Morelle has defeated Dr. Jim Maxwell in the race for the 25th Congressional District, replacing the late Louise Slaughter.

Slaughter passed away earlier this year after serving more than three decades in the House of Representatives. Morelle, in turn, has also served the Rochester area for more than thirty years, first in the Monroe County Legislature and as an Assemblyman since 1990.

Morelle’s election helps Democrats hoping for a “blue wave” retain a seat in Congress.

Morelle also won a separate ballot line to serve out the rest of the current term before his full two-year term starting next year.
