80842708_vote.pngToday's Primaries Will Decide LI Legislative Democratic Candidates

Today, Democrats across Long Island will vote to decide which candidates will appear on election day ballots in November. There are three Democrats who are fighting to challenge LICA’s 2016 PAC Honoree, Senator Tom Croci (R-Sayville): former Suffolk Legislator Rick Montano (D-Brentwood), attorney Joseph Fritz, also of Brentwood, and John DeVito, a law student from Mastic Beach.

The other two Suffolk County Democratic primaries feature publicist Giovanni Mata of Bay Shore, who is challenging seven-term state Assemblyman Phil Ramos (D-Brentwood) while Jordan Wilson Jr. of North Babylon is challenging state Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre (D-Wyandanch).

Nassau’s first Democratic primary features Freeport village trustee Carmen Pineyro, who is challenging Deputy Speaker Earlene Hooper (D-Hempstead). And in the second primary, former Nassau Legislator Jeffrey Toback is challenging Anthony Eramo of Long Beach, in the race for the Assembly seat vacated by the now Senator Todd Kaminsky (D-Long Beach), who left the Assembly when he won the Senatorial seat of ex-Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos earlier this year.
