Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap-up discusses the Conservative Party’s nominating convention, Facebook Live with Jason McGuire, Claudia Tenney’s Congressional race and the Party’s upcoming involvement in 911 tributes.

State Convention

Last week, we held our state convention to re-nominate President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Thank you to Congresswoman Elise Stefanik for accepting the nomination on behalf of the President. Elise is no longer a rising star, she is a star and having her at our convention was an honor.

We were pleased to also honor Russ Gugino with the J. Daniel Mahoney award for his continued activism within the conservative community.

We were also happy to have many elected officials and candidates join us. Senate Minority Leader Rob Ortt, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, and Assemblyman Colin Schmitt gave wonderful speeches, highlighting where one-party control has taken New York in just one legislative session: late term abortion, dangerous criminal bail reform, and an out of control state budget to just name a few.

We also heard from Senator Sue Serino, Senator George Borello, Congressional candidate Chele Farley and Assembly candidate Mike Lawler.

I would like to thank everyone who attended and made the event possible. Now, we shift our focus to getting our endorsed candidates re-elected and elected!

Live with Jason McGuire

I was happy to be joined on Wednesday by Jason McGuire, Executive Director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms and Chairman of the Livingston County Conservative Party.

Jason has been a great leader within the party for years, successfully lobbying legislators in Albany and fighting to maintain religious freedoms, we are proud to have him as our leader in Livingston County.

The interview can be seen on our Facebook page, pinned to the very top. I strongly encourage you to check it out.

Claudia Tenney Releases Ad

 Claudia Tenney released a new ad this week highlighting her support of our military and veterans, while her opponent, freshman Rep. Brindisi, prioritized impeaching President Trump and illegal immigrants over our men and women of the armed forces.

New York’s 22nd congressional district was Trump country in 2016, and I expect it to be just the same in 2020. Claudia can flip this seat back red, but only with your support. I encourage everyone willing and able to get involved. The path to taking back the House of Representatives starts right here in New York by taking back the seats we lost in 2018.
