BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Incumbent Antoine Thompson holds on, defeating two challengers in Tuesday's primary for the 60th New York Senate district seat.

Thompson will appear on the November ballot after beating business owner Rory Allen and former senator Alfred Coppola Tuesday.

"I'm really happy that we were able to be successful and I won Niagara Falls, I won Buffalo and that we'll move forward for November," Thomspon said after Tuesday's victory.
