LOWER MANHATTAN — Back in April, longtime Democratic district leader Alice Cancel won a special election for disgraced ex-Assemblyman Sheldon Silver's 65th District seat.
It was tight win — and a victory that could be unseated in Tuesday's Democratic primary, when Cancel will face off against five challengers in the heavily Democratic district.
Here's a refresher of who's challenging Cancel for Silver's seat — a powerful position he held for more than 35 years, before being convicted of a host of corruption charges related to two bribery schemes:
Gigi Li: The chairwoman of Manhattan's Community Board, Li, 35, is a trained social worker who has long been a community advocate.
Jenifer Rajkumar: A Battery Park City resident, the 33-year-old Democratic district leader is a Stanford-educated lawyer who previously ran against City Councilwoman Margaret Chin in 2013, a race she lost.
Don Lee: An IT executive, Lee has worked for several city mayors and grew up in Chinatown, where he's been an activist for community betterment.
