Established political figures carried the day in Thursday's primary election, which featured some contentious races in heavily Orthodox areas of Brooklyn.

Simcha Felder easily won the Democrat nomination for a newly created state Senate seat, the 17th district, with a critical mass of Orthodox Jews in Flatbush and Borough Park. Felder, a former Councilman and currently deputy comptroller of New York, won 83 percent of the vote against Abraham Tischler, a building managment consultant from Borough Park.
