Primary Elections Today

Don’t forget to get out there and cast your vote!  The polls in our area are open from noon to 9:00 pm.

In the republican primary race, we have KT McFarland and John Spencer running against each other for the position of the Republican candidate for US Senator.  The winner will face the winner of the Clinton-Tasini primary in this November’s election.  John Faso is the only GOP candidate running for New York State Governor, and Jeanine Pirro is the only GOP candidate running for New York State Attorney General.

Earlier polls have shown former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer leading Reagan-era Pentagon official Kathleen Troia “KT” McFarland in the GOP contest.

Democratic primary contests held today include the Clinton-Tasini race for Democratic candidate for US Senator, the Spitzer-Suozzi race for Democratic candidate for New York State Governor, and the Coumo/Green/Maloney race for the Democratic candidate for New York State Attorney General.

According to a Quinnipiac poll of 1,556 of “likely Democratic primary voters … conducted Sept. 5-10 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 5 percentage points”:

Quinnipiac’s poll had Cuomo leading former New York City Public Advocate Mark Green 50 percent to 31 percent among likely primary voters, with former Clinton White House aide Sean Patrick Maloney at 7 percent

Clinton led anti-Iraq war activist Jonathan Tasini 85 percent to 9 percent while Spitzer led Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi 79 percent to 12 percent.

Other polls have found Clinton and Spitzer well ahead of the GOP opposition and Cuomo or Green leading the unopposed GOP attorney general candidate, former Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro.
