Saland victory projected; McDonald 'not looking good'

Sep 24, 2012 4:21 pm
UPDATE: At 5:34 p.m., Mon., Liz Benjamin was reporting on Capitol Confidential it appeared Sen. Roy McDonald had lost the 43rd Senate District GOP primary to Saratoga County Clerk Kathy Marchione. No concession was forthcoming from McDonald, however. Marchione's attorney pronounced his client's win "inevitable," by mid-afternoon.

Capital Tonight is reporting the Sen. Steve Saland versus Neil DiCarlo recount in the 41st Senate District Republican primary has Saland ahead by 107 votes with only 29 contested ballots to count. Fran Knapp, Democratic election commissioner in Dutchess County said, "It's impossible for Saland to lose." DiCarlo was the unofficial winner of a write-in campaign for the Conservative line, making way for a three-way race in November. Ballot counting continues in the other contested GOP Senate primary, pitting Saratoga County Clerk Kathy Marchione against Sen. Roy McDonald in the 43rd SD. "It's not looking good for McDonald at the moment," Capital Tonight reports. Saland and McDonald were both challenged by conservative opponents as a result of their votes in support of the Marriage Equality Act last summer. Read the full story at Capital Tonight.
