U.S. Senate

It’s likely, no matter where you live in New York, that your television set has been bombarded with political ads for the last month.  

One race, though, that you probably haven’t seen many campaign spots for is in the U.S. Senate race where incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand is being challenged by Republican Wendy Long.  

Three candidates will be on the ballot in the Republican primary race for the US Senate seat now held by Kirsten Gillibrand. New York City Attorney Wendy Long received the most votes, with around 47%, followed by Congressman Bob Turner and Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos, who both received just over the 25% required to avoid seeking petitions.
