Joe Carvin is taking an interesting path in his quest to unseat Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand this year.
Last night, the recently announced candidate, who’s also a wealthy hedge-fund manager and town supervisor for Rye up in Westchester County, told Capital Tonight‘s Liz Benjamin he’s “absolutely” pro-choice and Congressman Paul Ryan is “my hero.”
When asked if his pro-choice stance could be a problem in a conservative Republican primary, Mr. Carvin replied, “No, not at all. I think what we have to focus on is what’s fundamental. I think unfortunately the social issues are more of a distraction.”
