It took a little longer than most of her party colleagues, but Caroline Mulroney joined in the Ontario PC celebrations eventually on election night.

Mulroney handily won the seat for York-Simcoe with 57.3 per cent of the vote, according to the unofficial results.

Mulroney celebrated the victory at Silver Lakes Golf and Country Club in East Gwillimbury, with her father, former prime minister Brian, in attendance.

The polls stayed open late in York-Simcoe, meaning Mulroney was among the last PC Party winners to celebrate.

The last poll was kept open until 11:25 p.m. in the riding due to a hold and secure earlier in the day at two Bradford schools that were also serving as polling stations.

For the first time in decades, the York-Simcoe will have a new MPP after longtime incumbent Julia Munro retired after serving 23 years in office, winning six elections in the process.

The NDP's Dave Szollosy finished second in the riding, with Liberal Loralea Carruthers placing third.
