PolitickerNY: "It's Special Election Day In New York"

 

NOM's efforts on behalf of David Storobin are mentioned:

In various parts of New York State stretching from Brooklyn to Buffalo, voters in vacant legislative districts will elect new representatives to Albany today.

The marquee race is the special election to replace former State Senator Carl Kruger. Mr. Kruger, Democrat who represented southeastern Brooklyn, resigned when he pleaded guilty to federal corruption charges last December.

Advertisements supporting and opposing Democratic Lew Fidler and Republican David Storobin have been flooding out in a last ditch effort to affect the vote.

Most of the latest advertisements appear to mirror previously reported ones. However, some eagle-eyed readers pointed The Politicker to several new ads, including an email blast from the National Organization for Marriage supporting Mr. Storobin and an ad from the same organization calling out former Mayor Ed Koch for his support of Mr. Fidler while touting Mr. Storobin’s rabbincal support. Another ad from a group called “Torah Defense Values, INC.”, was sent out in an email blast with a similar message against Councilman David Greenfield.

Mr. Fidler also has an ad in the Orthodox Jewish newspaper Hamodia, showing off his own rabbinical support.
