D'Amato: 'Farley will bring back the federal funding we need for infrastructure and jobs'
'The Kirsten Gillibrand of today is unrecognizable to the person who interned for me'
'She has abandoned New Yorkers in pursuit of her  ambitions'
New York, New York - Former U.S. Senator Alfonse D'Amato today endorsed Chele Farley in her bid for U.S. Senate against incumbent Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
“Chele Farley is the best chance we have had to win back this seat in over twenty years and I’m proud to endorse her candidacy,” said D’Amato.
With a reputation of delivering for New York, "Senator Pothole" as he was affectionately known, was the last New York Republican to represent the Empire State in the Senate.
D’Amato applauded Farley’s focus on delivering for New Yorkers, which is in stark contrast to his opponent Kirsten Gillibrand.
“New Yorkers should join me in supporting Chele Farley because she is focused on the right things -- bringing back the federal funding we need to fix our crumbling roads, bridges and subway and creating jobs,” said D’Amato.
In announcing his endorsement D’Amato, who endorsed Gillbrand in her first term, noted the Senator’s lack of focus on issues critical to New Yorkers.
Concluded D’Amato, “The Kirsten Gillibrand of today is unrecognizable to the person who interned for me or even the person who served in Congress -- she has abandoned New Yorkers in her pursuit of her presidential ambitions.
”Farley thanked the Senator for his endorsement noting, “I’m honored to have Senator D’Amato’s endorsement, he knows how to win and as Senator, he always put New Yorkers first.”
