Rochester, N.Y. - Republicans could not agree on a nominee to face Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand this November.
At the state party convention in Rochester, members voted on three possible contenders: Wendy Long, George Maragos, and Bob Turner.
The three people on the ballots did not gain a majority of the vote.
So now voters will decide who the nominee should be at the June primary election.
About 1,000 people attended the Convention Center for the one day event. Attendees will battle for New York's 95 delegates, which are being awarded proportionally this year.
The state GOP chairman says he believes Republicans will regain control of the Senate in the upcoming election.
That's why he says the focus of the convention will be selecting a candidate who can defeat Kirsten Gillibrand.
"For New York State to have Chuck Schumer and a clone of Chuck Schumer's representing New York State in a Republican Senate and a Republican Congress does not make sense for the people of New York State," said Ed Cox, NYS Republican Committee Chairman.
Cox also says we should see the Republican candidates for president campaigning in upstate in the coming weeks.
Former Governor George Pataki was the keynote speaker.
Among the guests at the convention will be conservative commentator Laura Ingraham.
