County Clerk Kathy Marchione, who is challenging Roy McDonald for his state Senate seat, received the endorsement of the Town of Malta Republican Committee late Sunday.
How late? We got the announcement at 11:11 p.m. I’m sure we’ll have more on this tomorrow later today, but I wanted to pass the abridged version along before I head out for the evening morning.
Malta was one of the local town Republican committees that publicly voiced their disapproval of McDonald about a month ago and declared he would not receive their endorsement.
McDonald also lost the endorsement of the Saratoga County Conservative Party in the wake of his votes on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s tax plan and the marriage quality bill.
Marchione, who was Halfmoon’s supervisor before she became County Clerk in 1997, said she’s running because she thinks Saratoga County has lost a consistent, conservative voice in the Senate and she feels she can provide that. So do the Malta Republicans.
