The endorsement is not yet online, and I can't post the whole thing for copyright reasons, but here is a relevant excerpt:
Elections in the Third Congressional District, which covers half of Nassau County and a slice of Suffolk along the South Shore, are usually yawners, with Democrats meekly stepping up to be stomped upon by the Republican incumbent, Peter King. He has not had a close race since his first, in 1992.
This year might be different. The Democrat David Mejias, is waging a lively campaign, brandishing his credentials as a member of the Nassau County Legislature and seeking to ride what he says is a general wave of disgust with Washington, with Congress and with President Bush.
Mr. Mejias is one of the few bright bulbs in the low-watt Nassau Legislature. He helped to create a bill of rights for domestic workers in Nassau, requiring that employers give them written statement of their rights under federal and state law. He has a good environmental record, particularly in efforts to preserve open space, and has been an important ally of County Executive Thomas Suozzi in restoring fiscal discipline to Nassau government. He promises to be a refreshing change in the Third District, and we endorse him.
I'll update with the link when it becomes available.
Mejias can win this one, but only if he has the money to get his message out, as King still has a huge cash advantage and can be expected to launch a blizzard of negative ads.
That's why I'm going to ask you to contribute to Mejias's ActBlue fund. Please click HERE, and show Mejias some love. These donations WILL make a difference. This race is on a knife's edge, and the mother of all upsets is imminent. The asshole is going down!
