Narrow Lead for Lally in GOP Primary

The Republican would face Rep. Steve Israel in the general election.

Grant Lally, R-Lloyd Harbor, narrowly led Tuesday's GOP primary election to decide who will face incumbent Democrat Steve Israel in the race for the Third District Congressional seat.

With all districts reporting, Lally brought in 2,857 votes, or about 51 percent, while Stephen Labate, R-Deer Park, took in 2,762 votes, or 49 percent.

Lally is an attorney who had picked up a number of endorsements, including from Rep. Peter King, R-Seaford, as well as from the Nassau, Suffolk, and state Republican committees, and leaders of New York’s, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Conservative parties.

Both candidates had run on a platform of lowering taxes, reducing regulations, and repealing the Affordable Health Care Act.

An Iraq war veteran, Labate, now a financial planner, had run against Israel in 2012, but lost a by “a margin of 57.58 percent to 41.65 percent,” according to Newsday.

Still to close to call it people. 500 Ballots still need to be counted.

Other then one having some military background, is there any practical difference between them? Both have promised to take away health care from the millions of people who finally have it - hardly something I would look forward to. I read a comment from someone that the tea whackers want to eliminate and then replace ObamaCare/RomneyCare with something else - but refuse to tell us what the new program would be, and won't explain how the right wing liked these ideas - created by the right wing think take Heritage Society, until Obama endorsed them.
