Today, she grabbed the endorsement of the person who Mr. Paladino beat in the 201o gubernatorial primary, Rick Lazio.
In a statement, Mr. Lazio praised Ms. Long’s “experience, intellect and ability to make the case for sane fiscal policies:
Wendy Long is a fiscal conservative and a Constitutional scholar with a strong commitment to limited self-government. Her experience serving on the staff of two U.S. Senators and working as a clerk for both a U.S. Court of Appeals Judge and a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States will prove invaluable in her work in Washington.New Yorkers don’t need another rubber stamp for the runaway deficit spending under President Obama. They don’t need another vote for the policies that are killing jobs and raising taxes. They need a strong, independent fiscal conservative that will be a check on the reckless Washington policies. That is why I encourage all New York Republican’s to vote for Wendy Long in the June 26th primaries and support her in the general election.
Washington is mess with too many politicians like Senator Gillibrand who like to talk out of both sides of their mouth, Wendy Long says what she means and means what she says. In the United States Senate, Wendy will give New York the principled leader we need to fight fight for us in Washington.Kirsten Gillibrand’s radical liberal agenda is crushing individual freedoms, discouraging job creators, compromising religious liberties and mortgaging our children’s future. Wendy will get Washington off our backs and help restore an economic climate where small businesses can invest and create jobs.This primary is critical, Wendy is the only candidate that can take Gillibrand on without all the distractions of the so called phony war on women and I encourage all New York Republicans to vote for her in the primary this Tuesday.
