Daniel L. Squadron defeated Martin E. Connor, a former Senate minority leader in office since 1978, in a Democratic primary for a State Senate district that covers parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Mr. Squadron, a 28-year-old former aide to United States Senator Charles E. Schumer, campaigned on a pledge to bring reform and fresh energy to Albany and was endorsed by a number of prominent politicians, including Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
In another upset in a State Senate race, Efrain González, a longtime Bronx incumbent facing federal corruption charges, was defeated by Pedro Espada Jr., a former city councilman, in the Democratic primary. Mr. Espada also served previously in the State Senate, but in a neighboring district.
