Dr. Robert Mittman, a Bayside allergist, has secured a spot on the ballot for the June 26 primary to determine the Democratic candidate for the new Queens congressional seat, his campaign said last week.

Mittman’s voter signatures, 938 of which were required to get on the ballot, were challenged by supporters of one of his opponents, state Assemblyman Rory Lancman (D-Fresh Meadows).

Lancman’s camp then poured over the signatures to try and invalidate enough to knock Mittman off, but the Bell Boulevard doctor held on.

“I am very happy that the will of over 2,800 resident voters of the 6th Congressional District who signed our petitions was heard loud and clear,” he said in a statement. “I look forward to this campaign and engaging the people, the press and, of course, my opponents.”
