Newsday has made its choice

Huge news. Long Island's Newsday has endorsed Perry for Congress!

They specifically cite Perry's doggedness, work ethic, and willingness to actually listen to others on Long Island:

"Gershon is smart, motivated, tireless and a listener, and his is the kind of private-sector success story many conservatives want to see more of in government. He says he has driven his blue Chevy Volt more than 38,000 miles across the district to meet with voters since the campaign started.

"...not being a native and wanting to stand up for residents of the 1st District is better than being from the 1st District and repeatedly letting them down. Gershon is smart, motivated, tireless and a listener, and his is the kind of private-sector success story many conservatives want to see more of in government ."

Among the many differences that contrast Perry and Lee Zeldin, Newsday points to healthcare as a prime reason they're on Team Gershon:

"Gershon wants to strengthen the Affordable Care Act and push for a public insurance option all Americans can buy into, and thinks the nation could get to single-payer health care over time. Zeldin and his allies weakened the law in a way that over time will drive up rates for New Yorkers who need coverage most."

And Lee Zeldin? He wants to take away your healthcare:

"Zeldin joined his party’s efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Except for the courage of the late Sen. John McCain, who defeated the effort in the Senate, as many as 1 million New Yorkers could have lost Medicaid benefits over time and more than 60,000 1st District residents could have lost their insurance."

The choice is clear for Newsday and Suffolk County: Perry Gershon for Congress.

Perry Gershon for Congress

I'm a businessman, not a career politician, so I look at things differently.
Government cannot fix our problems, but I believe we can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
