In 2009, Throne-Holst unseated Kabot, who then waged a write-in challenge in 2011. Throne-Holst kept her seat in that race from Kabot, who lost with 3,900 votes or 36.4 percent of the total ballots cast.
This time around, Kabot has secured the Republican line and is waiting for the Suffolk County Board of Elections to make a determination on Conservative line after she waged a Sept. primary for the line against Phil Keith.
That begs the question, will the third time be a charm for Kabot? Our new open blog, The Soapbox - Southampton Gov't hopes to be the place where locals can debate these kids of issues in town.
