Elections are just a week away, and the pressure is building up in Southern Brooklyn. While the primaries in September pretty much decided who will represent most of Brooklyn in Congress, State Senate and Assembly, there are a few races that are not quite done yet.
- Congressman Dan Donovan, a Republican, is facing a challenge from Max Rose, a Democrat.
- Senator Marty Golden, a Republican, is facing a challenger in Andrew Gounardes, a Democrat.
- Assembly seat vacated by Pamela Harris is up for grabs, and both Mathylde Frontus, a Democrat, and Steve Saperstein, a Republican, want it.
