State Sen. Ray Lesniak has won a convincing victory in his 20th District primary.
Lesniak defeated fellow Democrat and Roselle school board member Donna Obe.
Many thought the race would be close but last minute polls showed Lesniak pulling away. Lesniak ran the primary alone as 20th District Assembly representatives Joe Cryan and Annette Quijano were unchallenged.
The absence of Cryan, who helped carry the primary when the trio were challenged two years ago, had many believing Lesniak could be vulnerable, but the veteran won handily, defeating Obe by a margin of two to one.
