Newsday is reporting that a deal is in the works to move the primary date for state legislative races from Sept. 11 to Sept. 13.
That could affect voters in four St. Lawrence County towns who will be voting in an Assembly election. Assemblywoman Janet Duprey, R-Peru, is facing possible primary challenges from Karen Bisso and David Kimmel, conservative activists who live in Clinton County.
Because of her vote for gay marriage, Ms. Duprey is not eligible for the Conservative Party's line. Ms. Bisso and Mr. Kimmel say that they will try to force a Republican primary, so if they can get together the organizational wherewithal to get on the ballot, they'll be looking at a Sept. 13 GOP primary.
