The close Republican primary and subsequent recount have dominated talk of the race for state Senate in New York’s 43rd district, as incumbent Roy McDonald and the apparent winner in their race, Saratoga County Clerk Kathy Marchione, both head toward November’s ballot.
But Democrat Robin Andrews, the Town Supervisor of Claverack, may have new life in what was once considered a safe Republican seat. Andrews spoke with WAMC’s Alan Chartock.
Among the many races to be decided by primary elections tomorrow in New York, a very contentious contest for the Republican nomination in the 43rd State Senate District , and a more issues-driven campaign for the Democratic nomination for the 107th Assembly District. The candidates in the 43rd, incumbent senator Roy Mc-Donald and challenger Kathy Marchione met for a debate last night and the charges and counter-charges flew. Andrew Beam of the Troy Record was there. He spoke with WAMC’s Brian Shields.
