Alvin Bragg elected as Manhattan’s first Black district attorney

Democrat Alvin Bragg made history when he won the Manhattan District Attorney’s race Tuesday to become the first Black man elected to that office.

He defeated Republican opponent Thomas Kenniff with over 83% of the vote.

He will replace retiring District Attorney Cy Vance in January, and inherit high-profile investigations involving former President Donald Trump.
