We need your help. Over the past year we have been interviewing good republican candidates for the NY State Senate and Assembly, as well as the US Congress and Senate. Below is a list of our endorsed candidates to date.
The Senate candidates have promised to form an independent caucus and vote to replace Dean Skelos as Majority Leader, a symbolic act which will let the entire Senate and Assembly know who they work for, that the status quo and other “cozy” relationships with Cuomo, Silver and the Albany establishment are unacceptable, RINOS’s are unacceptable and the entrenched Albany establishment leadership is unacceptable.
In the Assembly it is crucial that we take away the veto proof majority from Sheldon Silver.
We seek legislators with intelligence and a heartbeat who will read Bills and vote on issues for the right reasons, not because the mope “GOP” leadership told them to do so with the threat of Cuomo’s intimidation. We seek an opposition to balance the corruption and illusion of the Albany establishment.
Determine which candidate is in your district, or if none, reach out to one nearby and help him or her. The hardest part of running is to get signatures on petitions. Our candidates are at a huge disadvantage. In most cases, they did not get the “Party” endorsement so the party is not getting signatures for them. It is up to our activists to get them enough signatures so our candidates et on the ballot for the primary and general election. Please help. You did with my campaign for governor and we made history. We need you again.
Thank you all.
