Out, war on women; in, war of women. NY US Senate race is Long v. Gillibrand

Long told supporters that Gillibrand is even more "liberal" than President Obama, and rightly so.

Wendy Long said that gender politics won't be an issue in the general election if New York Republicans joined New York Conservatives in nominating her to run for United States Senator against incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand because she and Gillibrand have similar backgrounds. Both are graduates of Dartmouth College and attorneys who clerked for federal appellate court judges. Both also are married with two children.

Yesterday most New York Republican primary voters picked Long, depriving the women chosen by National Journal as the most liberal United States Senator of her favorite scurrilous tactic.

"Kirsten Gillibrand said she wants more women in politics," Long told her supporters at a victory celebration in New York City. "Tonight we are here to grant her wish."

Gillibrand spokesman Glen Caplin said the senator called Long to congratulate her and "looks forward to running a strong campaign based on her record of fighting hard and delivering as a strong independent voice for New York families," while State Democratic Committee co-chairman Keith Wright in a prepared statement released accused Long of holding "extreme ideological views."

Gillibrand and Long both identify themselves as Catholic, but Long actually professes the principles of the faith to which she converted as an adult and teaches as a catechism teacher.

Team Gillibrand must consider being faithful to the Catholic faith "extreme."

Long told supporters that Gillibrand is even more "liberal" than President Obama, and rightly so.

Obama was the Senator from ACORN and then ACORN's man in the White House, but after the ACORN Pimp and Pro sting he publicly distanced himself from ACORN by dropping them as a census partner and signing the bill defunding ACORN.

Even New York's senior Senator, Chuck Schumer, an honoree at ACORN's 39th and last gala in 2009, voted to defund ACORN, BUT NOT GILLIBRAND!

New York's Working Families Party, the ACORN party in New York, had backed since she first ran for Congress and posed as a blue-dog Democrat, before being appointed to replace Hillary Clinton and to become America's most "liberal" United States Senator.

New Yorkers deserve the truth and plenty of debates.

That must be an "extreme" idea that Gillibrand hates.

Yes, Gillibrand is an attorney too, but debating Long is not a politically smart thing for her to do.

Gillibrand has $10,000,000 to spent on her campaign and will raise more.

Buying an election doesn't seem to be an "extreme" idea to Gillibrand.

That's not Long's way.

The candidate with the most money came in last in the Republican Senate primary and paid himself back a nearly one million dollar loan even before the primary because Long had not been deterred by his personal wealth and the Republican nomination was proving not to be for sale.

Long, an articulate attorney who clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas, won by campaigning across New York and bested her rivals in debate and joint appearances, not by outspending them.

DEMAND DEBATES!

The liberal media establishment will continue to work to keep Gillibrand in the Senate, but fortunately the voters will decide.
