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. That race is for New York’s First Congressional District, which includes the five East End towns and the Town of Brookhaven. Throne-Holst had a 29-vote lead that was too close to call on primary night.
Ex-Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi and U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Queens) won Long Island Democratic congressional primaries Tuesday, but a third local race was too close to call, according to unofficial results. Suozzi decalred victory with 36 percent of the vote in the crowded field of five Democrats seeking to replace outgoing U.S. Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington), who’s not seeking re-election. Meeks, who represents part of Nassau County, easily fended off Democratic challenger Ali Mirza, a publicist and county worker. But former Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst had a slim 29-vote lead over opponent David Calone, a former federal prosecutor turned venture capitalist.
