NYYRC Member Mark Goret on Candidate Turner

The NYYRC’s very own Mark Goret offers his opinion on Republican candidate Bob Turner’s chances at claiming the seat of former (and now thoroughly disgraced) Representative Anthony Weiner.

From Human Events:

“Bob Turner can put New York-9 in Republican hands for two reasons,” Mark Goret, New York Conservative Party state committeeman and Conservative leader from Riverdale, explained to HUMAN EVENTS.  “First, he got 41% of the vote against [then-Democratic Rep. Anthony] Weiner last November, which is unheard of in the 9th.

“And second, he’s a businessman, a citizen-politician like Ronald Reagan.  Republicans lost the last three special elections for Congress in New York State because all of the candidates were state legislators—Jim Tedesco [NY-20 in ’09], Dede Scozzafava [NY-23 in ’10] and Jane Corwin [NY-26 in ’11]—and voters hold politicians, and especially state legislators, in contempt.”

Mr. Turner spoke at the NYYRC monthly meeting on July 21 to an enthusiastic and supportive audience.
