Incumbent Kemp Hannon, R-Garden City, was re-elected to his 13th term Tuesday after defeating opponent Ryan Cronin, D-, in the race for 6th Senate District.

Hannon captured 52.37 percent of the total vote against the non-incumbent, Cronin.

Hannon was first elected to state senate in 1989 and and was re-elected to a 12th term in November 2010.

The 6th Senatorial District includes Bethpage, East Meadow, Farmingdale, Plainview, Plainedge, Massapequa, Uniondale, Lakeview, Hempstead, Garden City, Levittown, Salisbury, Island Trees, Franklin Square, Garden City South and a small portion of Wantagh and Seaford.
