Few surprises in south Brooklyn’s state Senate and congressional primaries as Rose, Malliotakis, Gounardes and Chu secure noms


The polls are closed in the August state Senate and Congressional primaries, and here’s where south Brooklyn’s competitive races stand as of Wednesday. New candidates and incumbent politicians piled into the Democratic primary this year after redistricting dramatically changed the lines of some state Senate district and Congressional districts, opening the races to new challengers.

Former congressman Max Rose will once again face off against Republican incumbent Nicole Malliotakis in the race to represent parts of south Brooklyn and Staten Island in the House of Representatives, as both have won their primary bids.
