NEW YORK - Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand easily won a Democratic primary challenge in New York from Gail Goode, a little-known lawyer for New York City.

Goode had little money, no big-name party support and was not considered a threat to Gillibrand, who was appointed last year to fill the unexpired term of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Goode said she ran to give New York voters a choice. Gillibrand will face Joe DioGuardi, a former congressman from Westchester, in the general election.
