Congratulations to all of our Republican Candidates on this year’s successful campaigns. While our Statewide candidates came up short, the blame for that is entirely on New York City and on two seats that were” jerrymandered” out of reach by the Democrat controlled Assembly.
Two years ago, Congressman Chris Gibson lost Ulster County by over 12,000 votes. This year, he won Ulster County by nearly 4,000 votes!
Two years ago, George Amedore lost the Senate election by 16 votes only after absentee ballots were counted. This year, he won by nearly 7,000 votes and joins our other three Republican Senators; Bill Larkin, John Bonacic and Jim Seward.
Keri Savona won election as our new Family Court Judge and shocking everyone with a resounding win, Lisa Fisher is the first Republican to win a seat in the 3rd Judicial District in fourteen years!
Assemblyman Pete Lopez was unopposed and Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney handily won reelection.
2014 will be a year long remembered as a time when the Republican Party stuck to its core principles, ran positive campaigns and the results show that our fellow Americans are ready for strong fiscally and socially conservative leadership.
I am extremely proud of all of our candidates and of the hard working Committeemen and volunteers who worked tirelessly to get our message out.
With warm and best regards,
Roger Rascoe, Ulster County Republican Chairman
