All seven candidates for the 33rd District seat — Isaac Abraham, Ken Baer, Doug Biviano, Ken Diamondstone, Steve Levin, Jo Anne Simon and Evan Thies — participated.

The taping featured lots of fireworks — including moderator Gersh Kuntzman needing to nearly physically restrain Diamondstone as he hammered Simon on a question about gay marriage — and is certainly going to make for great TV.

Democratic primary election. Polls open at 6 am and close at 9 pm. For information about your polling site, call (866) 868-3692 (VOTE-NYC).

Canonchet from Brooklyn Heights says:
This is not the 33rd district debate but the 39th. Checked the latter to see if they were switched, but nope, the former De Blassio seat is in here twice.

Moshe Aron Kestenbaum from Williamsburg says:
I'm going through a tough time now. I am feeling really low and literally sick to my stomach knowing that this kid levin is running and wants to represent us here . I hope he looses big time , this would send a message for shumer and lopez that the politics that they play is just nauseous.
