US Representative Jerrold Nadler beat fellow incumbent Representative Carolyn Maloney in a race that pit the two 30-year congressional veterans against one another, and Levi Strauss heir Dan Goldman took the party’s nomination over a tag-team of progressive challengers in brownstone Brooklyn in a pair of closely watched New York Democratic primary races.

The 12th Congressional District matchup on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and Upper East Side featured two powerful committee chairs: Nadler, 75, on the Judiciary Committee and Maloney, 76, on Oversight. A third candidate, Suraj Patel, is a 38-year-old former aide to President Barack Obama who touted himself as a generational alternative.
