Sen. Stephen Saland, provided the critical 32nd vote for same-sex marriage last June. Now he too will face a primary challenger:
... “The families of the 41st Senate District desperately need relief from mandates, crushing regulations, and high taxes from Albany,” Di Carlo, of Brewster, said in a statement. “Senator Saland has been in office for 32 years and he has not delivered.”
... Our families need a new voice in Albany that will deliver the benefits that flow from genuine conservative ideals and principles; this will not be a one-issue race,” Di Carlo said, hinting at the same-sex marriage issue. “That is why I am formally announcing my intention to seek the Conservative and Republican Parties endorsements for New York Senate in the 41st District.”
On his congressional campaign website, he says he’s pro-life and opposed to same-sex marriage.
Di Carlo said the “voters must have an opportunity to choose a conservative Republican who is not a liberal Democrat collaborator.” -- Politics on the Hudson
