The New York state Board of Elections reported Thursday that Robert Goodman of the Bronx has filed voter petitions to run on the Conservative line against Democratic Rep. Eliot Engel in the 17th Congressional District covering parts of the Bronx, Westchester and Rockland counties.
Goodman also is expected to seek the Republican line, according to Westchester County Republican Chairman Douglas Colety.
Candidates faced a Thursday deadline for filing petitions with the Board of Election or mailing them with the postmarks were before 5 p.m.
In the 19th Congressional District, Republican Kieran Michael Lalor of Peekskill, an Iraq War veteran, has filed for the Republican and Conservative lines.
The freshman Democrat who occupies that seat, Rep. John Hall of Dover, has filed for the Democratic, Independence and Working Families ballot lines.
In the lower and central Westchester 18th Congressional District, Republican Jim Russell of Thornwood did not file his petitions by the deadline. But the county GOP chairman said they are in the mail and he expects Russell to be on the November ballot.
Russell is seeking to unseat Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey of Harrison.
