New York's Republican presidential primary is today, but don't expect the excitement seen from earlier nomination contests.
With former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum having dropped out earlier this month, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is now being referred to as the "presumptive front runner" in published media reports.
Santorum is still listed on the ballot, according to records from the state's board of elections.
Westchester County Legislative Minority Leader Jim Maisano (R-New Rochelle) noted the lack of talk for the event in a Journal News interview on Sunday.
“No one I know on the Republican side is even talking about the primary," he told the paper.
The primary is one of five across the country today.
Although the primary is not drawing a lot of excitement today, Rockland County Republicans like Orangetown GOP Chairman Robert Simon said the presidential race is generating a lot of local political interest and is attracting new volunteers who want to be involved with the presidential campaign.
