I’ve come out as a David Malpass supporter, and while I haven’t followed the candidates running against Chuckles that closely, I personally like George Maragos a lot. That said, I don’t dislike any of the other candidates and would be happy to support any of them who win the primary in September.
But there’s something I read the rubs me the wrong way. The NY Conservatives held their nominating convention last Friday, nominating Joe DioGuardi and Jay Townsend to run for senate on the Conservative line. Speaking of the former, chair Mike Long said he, “…feels both the Republicans and the Conservatives ‘owe’ DioGuardi a debt of gratitude and should rally behind his candidacy this time around.”
Setting aside the fact that giving someone a job because you feel it’s “owed” to them says nothing aboot conservative principles, isn’t “You owe me” and “It’s My Turn” some of the reasons why the Republican Party is in the shape it’s in?
How aboot ALL the candidates earn the job in the eyes of the voters? Let’s try that, see how it works.
