Gillibrand, Schumer Bottom of the Barrel in National Conservative Rating: New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar

Brooklyn-NY…“The American Conservative Union just released its latest ratings of U.S. legislators, and it’s no surprise to see that Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer have about the worst conservative voting records in America. Ms. Gillibrand, who claimed to be a gun-toting moderate when she first ran for Congress, had a 3% conservative rating for 2023, while liberal Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer managed to slightly outdo Gillibrand with a 2% conservative rating.

“Scores that low aren’t easy to come by. You’ve got to be a real left-wing ideologue to rank that poorly. But what these ratings make absolutely clear is just how out of touch the Empire State’s U.S. Senate representatives are with the average New Yorker. That’s what happens when you live and breathe each day in elite, progressive ivory towers.

“Fortunately, Ms. Gillibrand is up for reelection this year, and we’re confident that Republican-Conservative Senate challenger Michael Sapraicone will thoroughly educate everyday New Yorkers about Ms. Gillibrand’s strident left-wing voting record. New York is facing so many problems under one-party Democrat rule, and Ms. Gillibrand’s and Mr. Schumer’s voting records are a major contributor. If we want to save New York, they both need to go, one after the other.”
