Gubernatorial - Representative Rick Lazio vs. Businessman Carl Paladino.
Senatorial - Bruce Blakeman vs. Rep. Joseph DioGuardi vs. David Malpass.
Senatorial - Former CIA agent Gary Berntsen vs. strategist Jay Townsend.
1st Congressional District - Randy Altschuler vs. Christopher Cox.
23rd Congressional District - Matthew Doheny vs. Doug Hoffman.
While the statewide Republican candidates might have little chance of winning this November, the eventual Nominee's on a district by district basis do have a solid chance at victory, especially in NY 1, 23, & 29.

The Democrats main weakness this year will be the Comptroller election. Don't be surprised if Mr.Rangel is ousted this evening and if Mr.Powell is ushered in.
