Congressional Candidates, Face to Face

Randy Altschuler finished by stating he could document the 125 votes Mr. Bishop had made to raise taxes and said he stood for change in Washington, to help business, and keep money here rather than “pay for programs we can’t afford.” 

“If you want to continue the policies of the Obama and Pelosi administration — if you want Obamacare, cap and trade, car check and further bailouts then you should vote for Tim Bishop.” The loud applause and cheers of many in the room indicated that they planned to do that.

Randy Altschuler Stands with the Club for Growth, Renews Pledge to Repeal Obamacare

Randy Altschuler’s Blog: The Club for Growth REPEAL IT! Pledge is a no-nonsense affirmation of my belief that the health care plan pushed through Congress by Tim Bishop, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Obama is bad for taxpayers and bad for America. This legislation will raise taxes and increase the deficit, while not improving health care for the average American. Real health care will come when we have Tort Reform, a lifting of state barriers on health insurance and a host of other free enterprise solutions. Any candidate for Congress, Republican or Democrat should sign this pledge if they sincerely believe in reforming the American health care system.

Four-term Democratic incumbent Timothy Bishop (D-N.Y.), who won his 2008 contest by a 16-point margin. That year, Obama also carried his district. Four years earlier, however, Republican George W. Bush won the area by less than a single percentage point.

These House Incumbents Didn’t Make the Fundraising Grade

Republican businessman Randy Altschuler reported raising $1,049,150, which includes the $200,000 contribution. Bishop won re-election to his 1st district seat with 58 percent of the vote in 2008, but voters there only supported President Obama for president with 51 percent, an indicator of the district’s competitive potential.

Randy Altschuler has already taken to the air

In a fairly clear sign that the GOP is deadly serious about reclaiming this seat on Long Island, Republican businessman Randy Altschuler has already taken to the air in his campaign against four-term Democratic incumbent Tim Bishop. Bishop has won re-election in this swing district (Obama won here 52-48 in 2008) with between 56-62% of the vote. Altschuler may well be the most well-funded Republican to contest this district since Bishop wrested the district away from Felix Grucci.
