Republican gubernatorial candidate Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy today said he won the endorsement of the Queens County Republican Party’s executive committee, a group that had supported Levy’s potential primary foe Rick Lazio.
“With each passing day we continue to gain momentum and this is another step forward in my campaign,” Levy said in a statement.
Lazio, meanwhile, announced his policy agenda for the state yesterday and today announced a policy group that includes former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
Levy’s campaign response to Lazio’s report states: “We congratulate Mr. Lazio for actually presenting a platform after a full year of campaigning. Unfortunately for him, most of it has already been announced by Steve Levy. Perhaps Mr. Lazio will grow a mustache as well.”
Here’s Lazio’s policy report.
“New York needs sweeping and fundamental change and I will continue to travel the state to spread my message to the people. Our momentum is building, and I know that by standing with the people of New York, we can take back our government,” Lazio said in a statement.
