Campaign 2024: Choice Words, Endorsements

Nancy Goroff, Democratic candidate in the First Congressional District, was endorsed by EMILYs List, which works to elect Democratic pro-choice women.

EMILYs List President Jessica Mackler said of Goroff: “Nancy Goroff is a champion for Long Islanders who has spent her life serving and bettering her community. In Congress, she’ll fight for our reproductive freedom and stand up to the Republican plan to ban abortion not just for New Yorkers but for all Americans. EMILYs List is proud to support Goroff because we know she’s the best candidate to take this seat back from anti-choice extremist Nick LaLota and deliver results for the 1st Congressional District.”

Choice Words

US Rep. Nick LaLota mocked one of his Democratic opponents for how he referred to Long Island in a recent online forum.

John Avlon and Nancy Goroff  are running for the Democratic nomination to run against the first-year Republican, and were participating in a forum organized by Long Island Network for Change.

But, as LaLota noted, Avlon told an audience that his policies would make “life easier and better here ‘in’ Long Island.

LaLota said of Avlon’s choice of words, “It’s rare to expose a political candidate’s fraud in a subtle three-second video clip. No, I am not talking about George Santos this time.

“In” Long Island… Not “on” Long Island as anyone with a genuine association with Long Island would say, LaLota said.

Republicans are attempting to cast the former CNN journalist as an outsider and elitist.

East End Endorsements

 Democrat John Avlon announced the endorsement of the Southampton Town Democratic Committee in his campaign for the First Congressional District. He also was endorsed by the Southampton Town Democratic Committee.

Former Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman said: “We need to send John Avlon to Congress to fight for Suffolk County families who need a Member of Congress that will take on the issues that matter to them, not special interests. John has the character, integrity and passion to be not only an effective Member of Congress, but someone who can help us bridge divides and solve real problems. I am proud to endorse John Avlon for Congress and know he will do tremendous work for Suffolk County in Washington DC.” Jay Schneiderman is also a former Supervisor of East Hampton Town as well as a former Suffolk County Legislator.”

State election calendar

The presidential primary will go foward April 2, even though President Joe Biden and former president Donald Trump have already clinched their parties’ nominations.

Primary voting for congressional and state offices is June 15.
