ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- One of the three republican contenders for U.S. Senate made a final dash across Upstate New York primary day.
Wendy Long visited polling places in the Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse areas, then began her journey to New York City to receive returns Tuesday night.
Polling has shown the race by Long, Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos and congressman Bob Turner is a tossup. But Long refuses to say what she will do if things don't go her way.
“I haven't given any thought to it. Do you know anybody who goes into any competition thinking they're going to lose? They don’t. You just don't. And I've talked to coaches. I've talked to some high school football coaches and basketball coaches all around the state. And they love it when I tell them that. They say, that's right. We would never tell our team to think about, ooh, maybe we're going to lose,” Long said.
Long already has a spot on the ballot as the state Conservative Party candidate to challenge democrat Kirsten Gillibrand in the fall.
