HOUSE REPUBLICAN WHIP STEVE SCALISE ENDORSES ANDREW GARBARINO FOR CONGRESS
House Republican Whip Steve Scalise announced today his endorsement of Andrew Garbarino in his bid for Congress in NY-02.
"I am excited to endorse Andrew Garbarino in his run for Congress. Peter King has been a great friend of mine since I came to Congress, and I don't take lightly his endorsement of the candidate who hopes to fill his shoes," Rep. Steve Scalise said. "Andrew is a third-generation Long Islander who has fought for his home and community in the New York State Assembly since 2013. Andrew understands what it takes to deliver results for Long Island, and I have no doubt he will bring that fight to Congress in November."
"I am honored to have the endorsement of House Republican Whip Rep. Steve Scalise in our run for Congress in NY-02," Garbarino said. "Long Island is where my family has called home for three generations. It is where my family ran grocery stores and delis and it is where we run our family law firm today. Since 2013, I have had the privilege of representing Long Island in Albany where I have taken on Andrew Cuomo's liberal machine. Now, it's time to take on Nancy Pelosi and this do-nothing Congress that is more interested in resisting the President's agenda rather than delivering results for the American people."
