Chele Farley was the unanimous choice of New York Republicans as she accepted the nomination for U.S. Senate at a snowy meeting of state leaders Friday.
Pledging to reverse New York’s historic balance of payment deficit with Washington, Farley officially launched her campaign for U.S. Senate uniting Republican and Conservatives historically early in an effort to unseat Kirsten Gillibrand. Farley told assembled delegates, leaders and party faithful, “I have 40 billion reasons to run. Since Kirsten Gillibrand took office New Yorkers have sent over $300 billion more to Washington than we got back. I will stand up and stop Washington from discriminating against New York taxpayer.”
New York State GOP Chairman Ed Cox asked the assembled convention delegates, “Can you name one thing that Kirsten Gillibrand has done for New York?”
Farley was nominated by Erie County Chairman Nick Langworthy who said, “Today, I’m pleased to have the opportunity to undo a mistake that was made 3,322 days ago. On January, 26th 2009, an accidental governor appointed a politically-connected, opportunistic and weak Upstate congresswoman to the United States Senate.”
Langworthy added, “I know Chele Farley. She will BE tomorrow what she is today. What she believes today she will still believe next year.”
Farley’s nomination was seconded by Manhattan Chairman, Andrea Catsimatidis who blasted Gillibrand’s notorious policy reversals saying, “She has flip-flopped so many times that she would put the Haviana flip-flop company out of business if she made shoes. But she hasn’t made anything in her life. She has built her career through political convenience at the expense of New Yorkers.”
Catsimatidis added, “Chele is a true role model for women, who women should look up to, who I have certainly been proud to look up to.”
Making note of the near blizzard conditions, Fulton County Chairman Sue McNeil also seconded her nomination adding, “The storm outside today is nothing compared to the power that Chele Farley is going to bring to this campaign.”
