The primary elections are less than two months away and the incumbents in key races in southeast Queens are already getting their finances ready for their campaigns.
Although not listed in the campaign finance database as of this week, Clyde Vanel is challenging state Assemblywoman Barbara Clark (D-Queens Village) for her seat. She has raised nearly $1,000 for her re-election bid, according to state campaign finance records.
U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Jamaica) has collected more than $652,000 for his re-election bid, federal campaign finance records show. So far, he only has one challenger: Asher Taub, a Republican Kew Gardens attorney who is seeking to beat the incumbent in November.
