News from tonight’s Democratic Primary…

Two-term City Council member Margaret Chin barely snuck away with a win over challenger Christopher Marte. 100% of the vote has now been counted in the District 1 race, according to the New York Times. Chin defeated Marte 46-44 percent, a slim 200 vote margin. Aaron Foldenauer trailed with 6% and Dashia Imperiale was last with just under 4% of the vote.

In the District 2 contest to succeed Council member Rosie Mendez, Carlina Rivera won a convincing victory over four rivals. The lifelong Lower East Side resident and former Mendez staffer has 63% of the vote with about 80% of the vote counted (according to unofficial results from the Board of Elections). Mary Silver has about 14% of the vote with Ronnie Cho and Jorge Vasquez each with 8% and Jasmin Sanchez with just shy of 4%.

We’re also following two competitive district leader races. In the 65th Assembly District, Part A, Caroline Laskow and Lee Berman have leads over incumbents Karen Blatt and Jacob Goldman. In the 65th Assembly District, Part B, incumbent Alice Cancel trails Daisy Paez. Ken Paskar appears to have come up short in his challenge against incumbent Pedro Cardi.

Morte to come…
