Tea Party Republicans challenging Incumbents over SAFE Act, Constitutional issues

rob-ariago-credit-poststar-posted-manufactured-housing-pro-news-daily-business-news-Two tea party Republicans serving on the Wilton Republican Committee are part of what may be an re-emerging pattern within the ranks of the party. Not unlike the 2010 Tea Party revolution that brought dozens of Republicans into the House of Representatives, local candidates Rob Arrigo and Elaine Gerber are challenging incumbent state Republican Committee members Todd Kusnierz and Shirley Needham on September 10th. The 2009 Pulitzer Prize winning PostStar tells MHProNews the candidates are vying for committee representation of northeastern Saratoga County municipalities in New York’s 113th Assembly District. Rob Arrigo said Saratoga County needs a stronger voice on constitutional issues, such as the SAFE Act and gun control legislation enacted in January. “Unfortunately the SAFE Act was passed not just with Democrats, but it was passed largely because (state Sen. Majority Leader) Dean Skelos, R-Long Island, allowed a vote on the SAFE Act in the New York State Senate,” he said. “That is unacceptable, and we want to go and hold those elected officials accountable. And the best place to do that is on the state committee.” Since MHProNews knows the SAFE Act is a big issue for manufactured housing professionals, we will track this re-emerging trend to see its potential impact on Congressional races in the upcoming 2014 election. ##
