Peekskill’s Kieran Lalor, the Iraq War veteran who’s making a bid for the Republican nomination to challenge Rep. John Hall, to a huge step forward last night. He won close victory at last night’s special 19th Congressional District convention held in Putnam.
Lalor edged out Westchester Legislator George Oros, R-Cortlandt. Former Rep. Joe DioGuardi was a distant third.
Oros, however, vowed to carry on with his campaign.
“I entered this race knowing there was going to be primary,” Oros said this morning. “I have been planning for a primary. We are going to take it to the Republcan voters and see what happens.”
