Democratic City Council candidate endorsed by GOP in reelection campaign

Councilman Robert Holden has been endorsed by the Queens County Republican Party for his re-election campaign to the New York City Council representing District 30, which will take place on Nov. 2. 

Holden ran against progressive candidate Juan Ardila during the Democratic primary election in June, beating Ardila by 926 votes. John Spataro was running on the Republican ticket but dropped out of the race shortly after the primary. Spataro is now running for election for judge of the New York Supreme Court 11th Judicial District.
