Wendy Long Wins Republican Nomination, Will Face Gillibrand
Attorney Wendy Long has won a three-way Republican primary to take on Kirsten Gillibrand in this fall's race for the U.S. Senate.
Long defeated Nassau County comptroller George Maragos and U.S. Rep. Bob Turner in a primary election Tuesday notable for low turnout.
Long held a double-digit lead with more than half the precincts reporting statewide.
Long now faces an uphill battle against Democrat Gillibrand, a three-year incumbent who already has about $10 million in campaign cash.
