The Primary Polls are closed...

...on the 2018 Primary contest to see who will bear the Democratic standard opposing two-term Republican Lee Zeldin in the 1st Congressional District.

No real surprise tonight... by far the best-funded (and biggest fraud), Perry Gershon, was an easy winner de­spite a late push by Irish-born Kate Browning.

Unofficial results, all 842 precincts reporting:

  • David Pechefsky... 2,425 (11.92%)
  • Kate M Browning... 6,159 (30.26%)
  • Elaine Di Masi... 1,207 (5.93%}
  • Perry Gershon... 7,226 (35.51%)
  • Vivian M Viloria-Fisher... 3,314 (16.28%)
  • Write-in Ballots... 20 (0.10%)

My wife will now strike the Pechefsky campaign sign from our front yard, but probably won't throw it out just yet.
