Campaign Trail Updates: Lopez, Spitzer Lose Comeback Bids


Two candidates seeking political combacks after scandals derailed their careers — Vito Lopez and Eliot Spitzer — have lost their bids to get back into elected office.

The Associated Press, which reports unofficial election night results, reports that disgraced former Gov. Spitzer lost the Democratic primary for comptroller to Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer.

Lopez, who resigned from the state Assembly earlier this year amid allegations he sexually harassed staff members, lost in the Democratic primary for Brooklyn's 34th City Council District.

Antonio Reynoso, the chief of staff to the current seat holder, was the winner.
