Jackson backs Long
March 5, 2012 - Chris Morris
Last week, I had a couple posts on this blog about Wendy Long, the Republican lawyer from New York City that wants to unseat U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.
This week, we can sort of localize her candidacy with the news that Essex County Republican Committee Chairman Ron Jackson is endorsing Long's Senate bid:
"Wendy Long is the real thing and exactly what New York needs in the United States Senate," Jackson said in a press release. "As Senator she will work to stop Washington's runaway spending, end the explosion of red-tape and create an economic environment that encourages private sector job creation."
In his statement, Jackson leveled some harsh criticism against Gillibrand, claiming that if the "Lemon Law" applied to politicians, she would "already be back shilling for big tobacco.
"In just a few years she transformed herself from a centrist, upstate, gun under the bed congresswoman to the most liberal Senator in the United States Senate," Jackson said. Long has picked up seven endorsements since declaring her candidacy about a week ago, including one from the Warren County Conservative Party.
