State Sen. Ge­orge Ame­dore routed op­po­nent Sarah Nic­coli in the race for the New York’s 46th Se­nate Dis­trict seat, win­ning a sec­ond twoyear term.

The un­of­fi­cial tally from the five-county dis­trict showed Ame­dore out­polling Nic­coli, 78,247-45,560.

Ame­dore, 47, said in a state­ment that he was “proud and hum­bled that the res­i­dents have given me the op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue to build on all we’ve ac­com­plished to­gether.”

“I re­main com­mit­ted to be­ing a strong voice for up­state New York, and fight­ing to en­sure com­mu­ni­ties through­out the 46th dis­trict get their fair share,” he said.

Ame­dore, R-Rot­ter­dam, was a state as­sem­bly­man from 2008 through 2012 and lost a bid for his cur­rent state Se­nate seat in 2012 be­fore win­ning the seat two years later.

Nic­coli, 39, is in her sec­ond term as Pala­tine town su­per­vi­sor and has a family farm. She is on leave as di­rec­tor of the New York State La­bor-Re­li­gion Coali­tion.

The 46th Dis­trict in­cludes all of Mont­gomery and Greene coun­ties; parts of Sch­enec­tady and Al­bany coun­ties; and the Ul­ster County city of Kingston and towns of Sauger­ties, Wood­stock, Hur­ley, Kingston, Ul­ster, Mar­ble­town, Esopus and Lloyd.
