Chuck Schumer, New York's senior Senator, today endorsed Rick Dollinger and David Nachbar in their campaigns for State Senate. Nachbar is challenging Jim Alesi in the 55th Senatorial District, while Dollinger is challenging Republican Joe Robach in the 56th.
"We're looking forward to real change in the White House, but we need change just as badly in Albany," said Schumer, who serves as Chairperson of the US Democratic Senate Campaign Committee. "Rick Dollinger and David Nachbar have the strength and determination to help make New York the great state it can be."
"Each year, I travel to every county in New York State, and each year I see how it's getting harder and harder for working families in upstate New York. Property taxes, gas prices and the sagging economy keep families in a state of perpetual economic uncertainty, and it has to stop," explained Schumer. "Dave Nachbar has spent his career creating jobs, and Rick Dollinger will return to the Senate with the know-how to deliver for Monroe County. They're a great team that will do great things for the families they represent."
"I want to thank Senator Schumer for his support, and for all that he's done for our community," said Nachbar. "If we're going to turn upstate around, lower people's taxes and create good jobs, we need more leaders like him fighting for the people of New York State."
"Senator Schumer is a friend and a real leader in Washington, and I'm honored to have his support in my campaign," added Dollinger. "New Yorkers are calling out for change, and a Democratic majority in our State Senate will be the change that moves New York forward again. Property taxes are overwhelming, families are being split up because of the lack of good jobs, millions lack basic health coverage, and our communities are looking for new leadership. The days of the do-nothing State Senate are over - it's time to get things done."
Will Robach get an endorsement from McCain? He could, I guess. But he won't be getting one from a senator from NY.
