The state senator from Rye has consistently shown that he will work long hours, listen to different points of view, get a handle on complex issues, and try to identify moderate, reasonable solutions.

We’re also disturbed that a political action committee backed by Robert Mercer has poured nearly $1 million into pro-Astorino and anti-Latimer media. Mercer’s a key benefactor of the extremist website, Breitbart News. Last year, The Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that the website was embracing ideas on the  “extremist fringe” of the alt-right. What will Mercer be expecting of Astorino in a third term or afterward?
