Your Democratic Nominees

The complex, weighted County Committee members’ vote on who will get the Democratic nomination to succeed two departing members of the State Assembly is by definition an inside process, but yesterday’s results suggest that it isn’t quite as under control as, say, the bygone institution of judicial conventions. (Nostalgia sets in fast around here!)

Scott Stringer’s choice to take his West Side seat, Linda Rosenthal, won a first round victory, albeit over a real challenge; but on the East Side, Sylvia Friedman Freedman beat Steve Sanders’s preferred candidate for his seat.
