Fox News reported that Yonkers Mayor John Spencer defeated Reagan-era Pentagon official Kathleen Troia "KT" McFarland to win the Republican nomination in New York's U.S. Senate race against Hillary Rodham Clinton.

As paper and absentee ballots were counted, news outlets confirmed that John Spencer's victory in New York's Republican U.S. Senate Primary was wider than initially reported.

Capital News 9 in Albany reported Spencer winning the GOP primary 63-37 percent.

Spencer was accompanied on the podium by fellow Republican and Conservative statewide candidates, gubernatorial nominee John Faso and State Comptroller candidate Christopher Callaghan.

New York GOP Chairman Stephen Minarik praised Spencer's efforts.

"John Spencer ran a grassroots campaign based on the issues that matter to New Yorkers. Spencer's platform of tax cuts, job growth, and keeping America safe is what New Yorkers deserve in a United States Senator," said Minarik.

Minarik said that Hillary Clinton has has failed New Yorkers.

"Whether it was her votes against tax cuts, failing to deliver on her promise to create 200,000 jobs, or voting against laws to strengthen homeland security. New Yorkers deserve a Senator who is focused on improving the lives of New Yorkers and not just interested in running for President," added Minarik.

The Syracuse Post-Standard also reported that the former Yonkers Mayor had also beaten his primary opponent by over 60 percent.

"Today the campaign begins, and New Yorkers will begin to see the difference," Spencer said Tuesday night. "The more they learn about her record, the more they'll see that I'm someone who will stand up to terrorism and support our military."

"She's trying to be all things to all people, but she can't hide from her record," Spencer said of Clinton. "Meanwhile, it's very clear where I stand."
