The Long Arm of New York Politics


By Michael Boyajian


Most voters would be surprised to learn that the government of the State of New York is being run out of a small liquor store in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.  The owner of the store is the head of the New York State Conservative Party, Mike Long, and when he is not hawking Thunderbird and Night Train he is pulling the levers of power in Albany.

Long Sticking It To Minarik

Conservative Party Chairman Michael Long announced today that his Party will preempt the Republican Party by holding its state convention to choose its Senate and Gubernatorial nominees on May 23rd in the Big Apple, one week before the May 31st GOP Convention begins on Long Island.

While Long and Minarik agree on backing John Spencer for US Senate, they disagree on the Governorship. Long has long favored John Faso while Minarik is backing Bill Weld.
