Benjamin and Castro Victorious

Assemblyman Michael Benjamin (79th Assembly District) has survived a primary challenge from the machine-backed Sigfredo Gonzalez.

Meanwhile, Nelson Castro (pictured) shook off recent revelations about his criminal record to defeat Mike Soto in the 86th Assembly District. Castro, who earned a rather measly 1513 votes, will become the first Bronx Assemblymember of Dominican heritage if he wins the election in November. The seat was vacated by Luis Diaz, who is now working for Gov. David Paterson.
