WOODBURY - Candidates across Long Island seized primary election victories Tuesday evening.

Suffolk District Attorney incumbent Thomas Spota was victorious over Raymond Perini for the Rebublican nomination. Spota claimed almost 56 percent of the vote and is seeking his fourth term in office.

Suffolk Sheriff Vincent DeMarco also won the Republican nod against Samuel Barreto Jr. DeMarco was first elected sheriff in 2005 and is seeking his third term. He won with just over 67 percent of the vote.

Both Demarco and Spota are already on the Democratic lines so they will be running virtually unopposed in the November general election.
