Leadership battle erupts among Brooklyn’s Republican party


An intra-party fight has broken out within Brooklyn’s often-marginalized Republican Party, as a conservative bigwig is looking to usurp the leadership of the Kings County GOP — citing consistently “disappointing” electoral results, including in the 2021 citywide elections.   

“Despite the Red Wave that swept much of the rest of the City, here in Brooklyn we once again had mostly disappointing results,” said Stephen Maresca in a statement. “I fear that we are quickly acclimating to accepting losses in every contest as long as it’s not a blowout.”
