Former Nassau County executive Thomas Suozzi has won a five-way Democratic primary race in retiring Rep. Steve Israel's Long Island district.

With the win Tuesday night, Suozzi will face Republican Jack Martins in what could be a competitive general election campaign.

Suozzi was defeated for re-election to his county post in 2009. He also ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic line in the 2006 governor's race, losing to Eliot Spitzer.

Also running Tuesday were Jon Kaiman, Steve Stern, Anna Kaplan and Jonathan Clarke.
