118th Assembly District
Robert Smullen defeated Patrick Vincent on Thursday night by more than 1,000 votes in the Republican primary. Smullen will face Democrat Keith Rubino in the November general election to replace retiring Assemblyman Marc Butler.
Smullen is a retired Marine colonel, and he is confident about winning the general election and working in Albany.
"I'm really looking forward to getting down there and being able to represent the people on all the issues that I campaigned on; lower taxes, less regulation, and more liberty for the people in Upstate New York," Smullen said.
119th Assembly District
It's too close to call between the two Republicans looking to take the seat being left behind by Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi.
With all precincts reporting, Dennis Bova Jr. leads Frederick Nichols by just 24 votes. Should those totals hold, Bova will face Democrat Marriane Buttonschon in November.
Oswego County Sheriff
Hastings resident Don Hilton came out on top in both the Republican and Conservative lines over Undersheriff Gene Sullivan on Thursday. Because there's no Democrat in the race, the results effectively mean Hilton will replace current Sheriff Reuel Todd -- who decided not to seek re-election -- unless absentee results change things.
133rd Assembly District
In the 133rd Assembly District Republican primary, the Republican incumbent will not appear on that party line in November.
Former prosecutor and Rochester city court judge Marjorie Byrnes claimed victory against Assemblyman Joe Errigo.
In both Monroe and Livingston counties, she unofficially brought in more than 60 percent of the vote.
In Steuben County, it was a tighter race but Byrnes still maintained a steady lead.
Errigo, who was at Monroe County GOP party headquarters in Rochester, did not immediately return a request for comment.
Not usually facing a primary, Assemblyman Bill Magee did have a challenger in the 121st District. But he defeated Dan Butterman for the Democratic nod by a wide margin, taking a little more than 60 percent of the vote.
