Senator Kirsten Gillibrand will host a fundraiser at Jean Georges next Tuesday to benefit Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney’s re-election campaign.
Maloney is–somewhat ironically–facing the most spirited primary challenge of her career, after spending much of last summer touting the value of intra-party competition when she was publicly eyeing Gillibrand’s Senate seat.
The two stood together in June to cheer the 9/11 health care bill, but it was hard to tell exactly how deep the goodwill actually ran.
“I’d say nothing brings people more easily together than a joint commitment to a common cause. And we have a common cause,” Maloney told The Observer after the June press conference.
And now, the common cause appears to be keeping Maloney in the House.
