Nassau County Legis. Laura Curran will be the Democratic nominee for county executive, riding support from party leaders to defeat County Comptroller George Maragos in Tuesday’s primary.

Curran, a Baldwin resident who has been on the legislature since 2014, declared victory just after 10 p.m. before a crowd of supporters at Nawlins Seafood Co. in Freeport.

County elections board results, as of 11:30 p.m., showed her leading Maragos by roughly 54 percentage points with 56 percent of districts reporting.

In her victory speech, Curran immediately pivoted to the general election, where she’ll face the Republican nominee, former State Sen. Jack Martins of Old Westbury.
