Clinton County Legislator Wendell Hughes won Tuesday’s Democratic mayoral primary in Plattsburgh, beating Clinton County Assistant District Attorney Dan Lennon.

Current Mayor Chris Rosenquest decided not to seek a second term, instead choosing to run for the Ward 3 seat on the Common Council. But he was beaten Tuesday by fellow Democrat and incumbent Elizabeth Gibbs.

Hughes moves on to face former mayor Don Kasprzak, a Republican, and independent Iris Cain in November’s general election for mayor.
