N.Y. Primary: Who Is on the Ballot? – The New York Times

Bronx: Representative Jose E. Serrano, the longest-tenured Hispanic congressman, is retiring. Twelve Democrats are running to replace him, including:

Councilman Rubn Daz Sr., a socially conservative Pentecostal minister;

Councilman Ritchie J. Torres, who became the first openly gay elected official in the Bronx;

Assemblyman Michael Blake, a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee;

Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, who ran unsuccessfully for public advocate last year; and

Melissa Mark-Viverito, the former City Council speaker.

Buffalo/Rochester: A special election will fill the House seat formerly held by Chris Collins, a Republican who resigned in the fall before pleading guilty to federal insider trading charges.

Chris Jacobs, a Republican, is running against Nate McMurray, a Democrat, and Duane Whitmer, a libertarian, to serve out the remainder of Mr. Collinss term. Regardless of the outcome, both Mr. Jacobs and Mr. McMurray have vowed to run until November, when another election will determine who will serve a full two years in the House.

Rockland/Westchester: The race to replace Representative Nita Lowey, a Democrat who is retiring after more than three decades, is a seven-way free-for-all.

The candidates include: Adam Schleifer, a former federal prosecutor and a son of a billionaire, who has spent more than $4 million on the race; Mondaire Jones, a former lawyer and progressive upstart; Evelyn Farkas, a former member of the Obama administration; and David Carlucci, a state senator.

Brooklyn: Representative Yvette Clarke, a Democrat, narrowly fended off a challenge in 2018 from a first-time candidate, Adem Bunkeddeko.

He is again running for that seat, along with Councilman Chaim Deutsch, who has avoided the public spotlight and opportunities to meet voters throughout most of the district; and Alex Hubbard and Isiah James, rivals whose campaign offices are in the same building.
