Congressional candidates cast their Primary Day ballots

By WKTV News

Incumbent Congressman Richard Hanna is hoping that his constituents will send him back to Washington, D.C. and cast his own vote to do so at the Trenton Municipal Building on Tuesday.

Primary Day for Congressional races was quite a bit earlier this year, moved up from September to June, making for a very short Primary campaign season. Not only did the election get pushed up, the new Congressional district lines weren't finalized until March.

"One of the reasons we've been successful, I get along well. I look for the best ideas and I don't go around insulting people or diatribing over issues and personalities," Congressman Hanna said. "I try to focus on the work, remember that we are all human."

Hanna is being challenged by Michael Kicinski, who voted at the Earlville Village Hall on Tuesday afternoon.

Kicinski said he would not answer any questions when an on camera interview about Primary Day was attempted at the Earlville Village Hall.

He has a news conference scheduled for 1 p.m. on Wednesday in Norwich.

The winner of this primary will face Democrat Dan Lamb of Tompkins County.
