The New York Times has the latest on the closest major race of the night:

In Nassau County, Republicans recaptured the county legislature, and have come close to unseating the Democratic County Executive, Thomas R. Suozzi, in a race that remained too close to call on Wednesday morning. Mr. Suozzi was clinging to a narrow 237-vote lead over the Republican challenger, Edward Mangano. In 2001, Mr. Suozzi, then the mayor of Glen Cove, defeated a Republican machine that had dominated the county for decades; he later competed for the 2006 gubernatorial nomination against Eliot R. Spitzer.

If there's a message coming out of yesterday's results in New York and New Jersey, it's that voters really don't like property taxes. But, you probably already knew that.
