The entry of David Malpass into the lists for the Republican nomination for United States Senator from New York is one of those opportunities for which the state has been have been waiting. A former official in the Reagan administration, he is a successful businessman and public intellectual who is short on gimmickry and long on substance. He has thrown his hat into the ring in hopes of gaining the nomination to challenge the Democratic incumbent, Senator Gillibrand.

I’ve never heard of David Malpass. Do the people of New York know whow he is?

Thanks for the ping!
Good grief. Another supposedly” good candidate” willing destroy other “good candidates” in a primary. Meanwhile Schumer is all but unopposed. The idiot firing circle of the NY GOP continues unabbeted by experience or past casualties.

The Nixon - Coxes need to go.
No more Country club RINOS.
