BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Tom Reed has won reelection in the U.S. House, the 23rd District.

He was declared winner against Democrat John Plumb, a U.S. Navy Captain.

It was a tight race as Reed, a Corning attorney, received about 56 percent of the votes.

The 23rd Congressional District covers the Southern Tier, Finger Lakes and parts of Western New York.

"This has been an uphill battle, and I’m very proud to say that I’ve woken up every day of this campaign to fight on our behalf. Unfortunately, the votes have been counted and today did not go in our favor," Plumb said in a statement on election night after the results were in.
