NEW YORK — Democratic US Sen. Charles Schumer has eased to a third term over a little-known Republican challenger in New York on Tuesday.

The Associated Press called the race for Schumer based on interviews with voters as they left the polls statewide. Schumer defeated Jay Townsend, a political consultant making his first run for public office.

Schumer is the No. 3 Senate Democrat. He was overwhelmingly favored to win. He's considered a possible successor to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid if the Nevada senator loses his re-election bid.
