Handful of races set in primaries on Aug. 9

SALISBURY — Voters have only a handful of races to consider in the Republican and Democratic party primary elections Tuesday, Aug. 9.

The highest profile race is for the GOP nod for U.S. Senator. Former state House Minority Leader Themis Klarides (formerly representing the 114th District) squares off against challengers Leora R. Levy and Peter Lumaj. The winner will face incumbent Dick Blumenthal (D).

There are three candidates on the GOP ballot for Secretary of the State: Dominic Rapini, Brock Weber and Terrie E. Wood. However, Weber dropped out of the race on July 16.

On the Democratic ballot, Stephanie Thomas and Maritza Bond are the choices for Secretary of the State.

Erick Russell, Dita Barghava and Karen DuBois-Walton are vying for state treasurer.

Voting is at the six Region One town halls Tuesday, Aug. 9, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
