Stefanik overwhelms Doheny in NY-21 GOP primary

November's ballot is set after yesterday's primary elections. Among the races decided yesterday, Elise Stefanik beat Matt Doheny in the GOP primary for the 21st District Congressional seat opened up by Democratic Congressman Bill Owens' decision not to run this year.

Stefanik's win sent shock waves through the North Country last night. She was unknown before moving to Willsboro in Essex County last year. Yesterday, she won 60 percent of the votes in the Republican primary for the region's House seat. She toppled Watertown businessman and investment banker Matt Doheny, who was running for the third time.

After a sometimes bruising and bitter campaign, Stefanik, who is 29 years-old, won every county in the sprawling district.

We have two reports this morning, the first from Brian Mann -- who was at Stefanik's victory rally last night in Glens Falls, then from David Sommerstein, who was with Doheny supporters in Watertown.  Go to full article
