Mitt Romney’s Empire State Endorsements

…the former Massachusetts governor — whose team was behind the headline-making win of Bay State Sen. Scott Brown  — is lending his name to (and opening his wallet) these NY Congressional hopefuls: Incumbent Reps. Pete King and Chris Lee, Randy Altschuler

“At a time when we need leaders who will enact pro-growth policies that will turn our troubled economy around and put people back to work, too many Washington politicians are instead focused on growing the size of government. New York – and our nation – deserves leaders who will put the interests of the people ahead of the special interests, and work to get our economy back on track. That is why I am proud to stand with these candidates today,” said Romney.

Randy is facing incumbent Rep. Tim Bishop (D) in November.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) announced today that Randy Altschuler (NY-01) has reached ‘Young Gun’ status

Randy Altschuler has proven that he’s ready to take on Washington insider Tim Bishop, an out-of-touch Democrat who has blindly supported his party’s failed agenda of job-killing policies and reckless spending,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX). “Randy’s campaign is a symbol of the growing momentum behind Republican candidates in New York and across the country. As Democrats and their party bosses continue to force  their big-government, big-spending policies onto the backs of hard-working families, Republicans like Randy Altschuler will continue to present a clear alternative to a Democrat majority that unapologetically spends too much, borrows too much and taxes too  much.”
