Up Close: Queens congressional candidates

Sunday, May 13, 2012

This week, a conversation with three Democratic candidates for New York's 6th congressional district in Queens.

We are continuing our series of discussions with the candidates in next month's New York congressional primary.

One of the more closely watched races is going on in Queens.

It's for the redrawn 6th congressional district, covering the central and northeastern part of the borough.

Most of the area is represented by Congressman Gary Ackerman, who is retiring.

Joining us are three candidates running in the Democratic primary.

They are Elizabeth Crowley, City Councilwoman from Glendale.

Grace Meng, New York State Assemblywoman from Flushing.

And Rory Lancman, Assemblywoman from the Hillcrest-Fresh Meadows area.
