Don't Miss Out On The June 26th Federal Primary!

While this year's presidential primary stole much of the show, next up is June 26th's federal primary to decide who'll challenge Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for U.S. Senate.

The candidates are (left to right from the picture above) Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos, Manhattan Lawyer Wendy Long and Congressman Bob Turner, who shocked Democrats last year by wresting control of disgraced-Congressman Anthony Wiener's NYC seat.

And let's not forget about the 22nd Congressional District where Congressman Richard Hanna is facing a challenge from Michael J. Kicinski, Sr., of Earlville, NY.
