Calling her “the principled leader we need to fight for us in Washington,” Carl Paladino today endorsed Wendy Long for the United States Senate.

“Washington is mess with too many politicians like Senator Gillibrand who like to talk out of both sides of their mouth, Wendy Long says what she means and means what she says. In the United States Senate, Wendy will give New York the principled leader we need to fight fight for us in Washington.

“Kirsten Gillibrand’s radical liberal agenda is crushing individual freedoms, discouraging job creators, compromising religious liberties and mortgaging our children’s future. Wendy will get Washington off our backs and help restore an economic climate where small businesses can invest and create jobs.”

He added, “This primary is critical, Wendy is the only candidate that can take Gillibrand on without all the distractions of the so called phony war on women and I encourage all New York Republicans to vote for her in the primary this Tuesday.”

Wendy Long said, “I thank Carl for his kind words and encouragement. Carl is a true conservative, who is unafraid to tell the hard truths and his voice is important to our state. I’m confident that if we have the courage to confront our problems in the same forthright mannner we can restore confidence and optimism for our state and nation.”
