Vassar Grads Face Primaries Today

Today is election day for New York State primaries, which will determine the political future of two Vassar alumni. Rick Lazio '80 is running against Carl Paladino for the Republican nomination for Governor, while Eric Dinallo '85 is running against four others for the Democrat nomination for Attorney General, including Kathleen Rice, the current District Attorney for Nassau County.

Lazio has made headlines lately for his opposition to the Cordoba House, or "Ground Zero Mosque." He and Paladino are tied in most recent polls.
