In Suffolk County, District Attorney Tom Spota survived his first competitive election since he took office in 2001. Winning 56-percent of the Republican primary vote, Spota beat former prosecutor Ray Perini.  Spota's win means he will again be the only candidate on the November ballot, because of a cross endorsement deal between Suffolk's major political parties.
