A handful of New York Republican and Democratic hopefuls and one incumbent squared off across the Hudson Valley and beyond Tuesday, with the hopes of securing their party's blessing and a chance to unseat sitting lawmakers come November.

The results

On a state-wide level, Republican Wendy Long defeated by a wide margin, securing just over half of the vote. Long—a Manhattan-based attorney—will face-off against current U.S. senator and Democrat Kirstin Gillibrand come November's general election.

In Rockland, 2,612 resident voted in the Long primary; in Westchester, 5,833.

Long formerly served as a press secretary for U.S. senators William L. Armstrong (R-CO) and Gordon J. Humphrey (R-NH), and is a member of Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's Justice Advisory Committee.
