Sounds like a Shinagawa win

The Tompkins County Board of Elections reports unofficially that Nathan Shinagawa won the Democratic Congressional primary here in Tompkins County by a little more than a 3-2 margin, and it sounds like the rest of the 23rd Congressional District went the same way.

Shinagawa will be challenging Republican first-term incumbent Tom Reed this November. If you'd like to know more about the newly-created 23rd District, I've written up an introduction.

Update: Our previous Congressman, Richard Hanna, defeated his Republican primary opponent by more than a 2-to-1 margin, but the challenger may still consider an independent run. Hanna (and possibly Kicinski) will face Democratic challenger Dan Lamb, of Dryden, in November.
