Lambda Endorses Connor, Declines to Endorse in Towns-Powell Race

Brooklyn’s oldest and largest gay Democratic club, Lambda Independent Democrats, endorsed neither Representative Ed Towns nor his challenger, Kevin Powell, at its endorsement meeting last night.

In the heated State Senate race between State Senator Marty Connor and his challenger, Dan Squadron, the club chose Connor.

I’ve put in some calls to find out more–I’ll update when I hear back.
