In a crowded field in the race for the 125th District Assembly Seat to replace Barbara Lifton, who is retiring this year, Anna Kelles emerged as the victor for the Democratic nomination.

Kelles, a Tompkins County legislator, won the primary by a margin of 2,000 votes over Seph Murtagh, Sujata Gibson, Jordan Lesser, Jason Leifer, Lisa Hoeschele and Beau Harbin.

WRFI News Director Michayla Savitt caught up with Kelles over the phone on July 7, the day after the results were announced.
