Former Democratic Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper is squaring off against incumbent Democrat Barry Grossman.
Council members say it is too early to tell who will win the race.
But they say this campaign will be one to watch.
"If you were going to look at race right now... I don't think she would enter the race if she didn't think she could give him a run for the money," says Phil Fatica.
"I think she did an excellent job... and I'll help her to the best of my abilities," says Fiore Leone.
None of the members we spoke with say they would commit to one definite candidate.
