Maltese Throws an Early Pasta Party

State Senator Serph Maltese, who barely won re-election last year and will likely be targeted by Democrats in 2008, is starting his re-election efforts early.

He'll be hosting a "pasta party" at Roma View Caterers on Cross Bay Blvd. this Thursday at 6 p.m. Cost of entry: $50.

By the way, did anybody else know that he had his own campaign website?
