In statewide races there weren’t any surprises across New York.
Gov. Kathy Hochul and U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin were declared projected winners in gubernatorial primary races.
Zeldin’s contest was a four-way primary against Andrew H. Giuliani, Harry Wilson, and Rob Astorino. For Hochul, the incumbent, a prolific fundraising effort over the last several months positioned her to emerge victorious out of Tuesday’s primary.
The Associated Press also declared Lt. Gov. Antonio Delgado the winner in the three-way Democratic Primary for that spot on the ballot this November.
LOCAL LOOK: The biggest primary contests
There were two local primaries that stood out from the rest. While there will be plenty of competitive Congressional primaries as boundary lines are re-drawn- those won’t be held until August.
On June 28 the focus was on local races- where turnout and two high-profile positions took center stage. David Cirencione and Art Williams emerged successful on primary day in their contests for Ontario County Sheriff and Wayne County Judge respectively.
