Maggie Gallagher: Republicans Risk Losing NY Senate Over SSM

 

YNN's Capital Tonight (New York's Only Statewide Political Program):

National Organization for Marriage co-founder Maggie Gallagher said in an interview that Republican control of the Senate is in danger after the leadership allowed a vote on the issue last June.

“I do think the Republicans control of the Senate is going to be in danger. Nobody likes somebody who campaigns one way and votes another. You can’t trust politicians like that,” she said.

Gallagher noted that the GOP could gain a seat should David Storobin defeat Democrat Lew Fidler in the special election for the Brooklyn seat held by ex-Sen. Carl Kruger.

The Senate is divided 32-29, with the one vacancy.
