1. And trickle they shall for another week or so. Lots of absentee ballots...

These three are incumbent, so absentees won't change the results, but my district is very close so a few hundred votes could change the outcome.

3. Except for Clarke, I think those results are new today.

We are still waiting (and will remain waiting) until July 6-8 when the NYC count resumes.

I'm glad Suozzi won. His district swings back and forth, so we're lucky to have that seat in Democratic hands. He's well known here on LI and has a seat on Ways and Means.

5. I'm curious about 2nd district-- primaries seem decided at this point, but how's the general look...

After so many years of King, do we have a chance? I'm hoping that King's moderation gives us that chance.

Here in the 1st, it looks like Gershon is going to take it again. He lost to Zeldin by 4 points last time so he thinks he has a better chance this year. I've met him and think he's a lightweight, but so it goes-- Zeldin must go.

6. We had a chance last time with Liuba Grechen Shirley,

and she actually did pretty well, but she's not running this time out...she's working on her PAC (Vote Mama) and expecting a baby. Liuba made history in 2018:

FEC approves NY candidate's request to use campaign funds for childcare

********************************************************************************************************

Up until the pandemic, there were regular demonstrations of everyday folks at King's local office (families, clergy, seniors) to protest Trump's immigration policies. Although we did have some BLM marches and some pro-Trump / "don't-tread-on-my-right-to-be-a-super-spreader" idiots on parade, things have been pretty much at a standstill since March. I'm assuming that people like me will be phone banking once we have our candidates, but I doubt we'll be traveling to swing states for Biden like we did in 2016.

I think the key for purple Long Island is that moderate Democrats can win. That's why I'm happy that Suozzi will be our candidate.

My own congresswoman is Kathleen Rice. I'm far from crazy about her, but we're lucky to have a Democrat in that seat.

4. Counting of absentee ballots won't begin until July 8.

According to a NYT's analyst:

Luis Ferré-Sadurní June 30, 2020
New York law says absentee ballots can’t be opened and counted until a week after Election Day. That means Wednesday would have been the earliest they could have been counted.


Luis Ferré-Sadurní June 30, 2020
The New York City Board of Elections said today that Staten Island will begin counting absentee ballots on July 6, and Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx on July 8.

Luis Ferré-Sadurní June 30, 2020
Why is N.Y.C. delaying the count? We’re still waiting for an official answer. But it’s likely the Board of Elections is overwhelmed with more absentee ballots than usual.
