Weld’s Conservative Bid

With John Faso and Pat Manning scrapping over county-level Conservative Party endorsements and Tom Suozzi romancing Mike Long, the GOP leadership’s preferred candidate for Governor is getting into the game too.

Conservative icon Herb London, the party’s candidate against Pataki 12 years ago, has written Party leaders encouraging them to endorse Bill Weld on, primarily, fiscal grounds.

In the letter, obtained by the Politicker (.pdf), London writes:

“I don’t agree with Bill on every issue. But unity does not infer unanimity. In my opinion, Bill offers more than any other Gubernatorial candidate the Conservative Party might consider. He deserves to be at the top of this ticket.”

CORRECTION: 1990 is the year London ran for Governor.
