Democrats and Republicans will each have a chance to pick their candidates when they go to the polls on Tuesday for state primaries.
In the 40th Senate district, which includes Putnam and eastern Dutchess, incumbent Sen. Terrence Murphy is waiting to determine whether he will be challenged by Democrat Andrew Falk, who lives in Patterson and has unsuccessfully run for Assembly twice, or Ali Boak, a former Pound Ridge councilwoman.
Republicans in the 94th Assembly district, which covers parts of Putnam will pick between Kevin Byrne, a Mahopac resident, and Carmel Town Board member Suzi McDonough. The winner will face Democrat Brian Higbe.
Byrne, who was endorsed by the party, will appear on the Conservative, Independence and Reform lines, regardless of the outcome. Assemblyman Steve Katz decided not to run for re-election.
