Turner for US Senate from NY

Spent a few hours at the home of Saul and Stephen Rich. I was able to have quite a bit of face-time with Congressman Robert Turner (Brooklyn/Queens, NY; NY-9).

TOPICS: Politics
KEYWORDS: newyork; republican; senate; turner
About two weeks ago he announced for the US Senate from NY in competition with Senator Gillibrand. Congressman Turner has nationwide recognition for taking a solid Democrat Party seat formerly held by Weiner; thus, he can put Gillibrand's seat in play. June 26, 2012 will be primary day for the Republican nomination. Three candidates are vying. He currently serves on Committee on Foreign Affairs, Committee on Veterans Affairs, Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs, Committee on Homeland Security. He told an interesting story about visiting Afghanistan with two other congressmen. Gillibrand's recent mailings have featured Congressman Turner, so he is perceived as a real threat to her. If you want to help put a US Senate seat in play, then pony up some of that lottery ticket money to a more likely outcome.
