One of the claims Joel Tyner made in yesterday’s debate with Julian Schreibman was that he, Tyner, was the logical successor to Congressman Maurice Hinchey.
Today, Maurice Hinchey endorsed Julian Schreibman. He said: “The Hudson Valley and Catskill regions deserve and need a strong, progressive voice in Washington who will fight for them, and Julian Schreibman is the best candidate to do that.”
Hinchey added, “While I feel that Julian is the strongest candidate in this race, I also appreciate the community work that Joel has done over the years…. I would be happy to support him in future races on the county and state level.”
As Congressman Hinchey discreetly indicated, Joel Tyner has done admirable work at the local level but simply lacks the resources and the qualifications to compete on the national stage. Please cast your vote accordingly in next Tuesday’s primary.
