As noted earlier, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer threw his support behind Dan Squadron, becoming one of the most prominent Democrats to back him in his Democratic primary challenge to state Senator Marty Connor.
Connor has responded with this statement:
“The Manhattan Borough President and I have an excellent working relationship and I am confident it will continue once the voters send me back to Albany. I’m proud to be endorsed by the vast majority of the progressive unions, organizations and leaders in New York based on my strong record on education, affordable housing and quality health care.
“As the Democratic Senator with the most expertise on Senate Rules and practices, I look forward to adopting extensive Rules changes that promote open and honest government next year when we are in the majority.”
