Primary in SD-59, SD-62

Today is primary day. There is no primary in the 29th Congressional District, but on the off chance that some of my political junkie readers missed it, there are New York State Senate primary contests in two districts in the 29th.

There are Republican and Democratic primaries in New York State Senate District 59, which contains all of Wyoming County, and parts of Erie, Livingston and Ontario Counties. Democrats Kathy Konst and Timothy Pawarski are running, as are Republican incumbent Dale Volker and challenger David DiPietro.

There are Republican and Conservative primaries in SD-62, which covers Gates, a tiny bit of Rochester, Orleans County and part of Niagara County. Republican Brian Grear is doubling down by challenging incumbent George Maziarz in the primary, as well as in the general: Grear also filed petitions for the Democratic line. Conservative Donald Hobel is challenging Maziarz for that line.
