#N12BX: Newcomers beat establishment Dems in NY primary

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

A lot of newcomers beat out established Democrats during the New York primary.

Sen. Jeffery Klein of the 34th District in the Bronx was beat by Alessabdra Biaggi, a lawyer and former Gov. Andrew Cuomo aide.

Klein spent more than $2 million on his campaign.

Biaggi says her campaign represented people over money.

In Brooklyn, Zellnor Myrie beat incumbent Sen. Jesse Hamilton.

Myrie, an attorney, attacked Hamilton for his connection to the Independent Democratic Conference.

However, gubernatorial hopeful Cynthia Nixon, a self-described democratic socialist and former “Sex and the City” TV star, lost to Gov. Cuomo.
