Throne-Holst Beats Calone in East End Congressional Primary

Former Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst won the June 28 Democratic congressional primary against venture capitalist David Calone by a 319-vote margin Friday after all the paper ballots were counted, officials said. Throne-Holst will go on to challenge freshman U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) in the November elections.

Throne-Holst had a 29-vote lead that was too close to call on primary night.
