Nancy Goroff has won the Democratic nomination for New York’s First Congressional District, after more than 36,000 absentee ballots were finished being counted on Thursday.
She will now focus on the race against Rep. Lee Zeldin, a three-term Republican, in the November 3 General Election.
Goroff, who launched her campaign one year ago today, won the primary by a margin of 630 votes. She received 17,905 votes, while Perry Gershon of East Hampton, who ran against Zeldin two years ago, took in 17,275. Gershon had a slight lead after the in-person votes were tallied.
