Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino & Rus Thompson from TEA New York have endorsed Wendy Long for U.S. Senate.
Paladino and Thompson made the announcement late Sunday morning at the
Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens in south Buffalo at a news conference.
Long is attempting to unseat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
Long has been unanimously endorsed by the Conservative Party of New York State and will appear on that ballot line in the November general elections.
Long was also the plurality favorite of the rank-and- file GOP at the party’s state convention, amassing some 48% of the vote from Republican leaders across the state.
