New York’s 1st Congressional District:
Self-funded businessman Perry Gershon has won the Democratic primary for New York’s 1st Congressional District in eastern Long Island.
He’ll go on to face two-term Republican incumbent Lee Zeldin.
Gershon, a Manhattan businessman, changed his registration to the East End in order to run against Zeldin. He loaned his campaign $1.3 million and pounded the air waves with advertisements.
