It’s a dog-eat-candidate race in the 21st Congressional District as Republican candidates Matthew A. Doheny and Elise M. Stefanik work to turn out the vote ahead of Tuesday’s primary election.

Mr. Doheny, an investment fund manager from Watertown, was bitten by a German Shepherd while campaigning in the city Sunday.

Ms. Stefanik, a former White House policy adviser from Willsboro, was in the city with supporters on Saturday.

Mr. Doheny said he was able to escape the jaws of the “definitely aggressive” dog with the help of the cowboy boots he was wearing and the barrel rolls he learned from high school football drills.

“I bounced up and hopped back into the truck,” Mr. Doheny said.

Ms. Stefanik has been endorsed by the New York state Conservative Party and Mr. Doheny has been endorsed by the state Independence Party.

The winner of the Republican primary will face Democrat Aaron G. Woolf and Green Party candidate Matthew J. Funiciello in the general election.
