Congressmembers Maloney, Nadler enter endorsement turf war


The endorsement wars of New York Congressional District 12 are raging. 

Over the past week, Congress members Jerry Nadler and Carolyn Maloney have trotted out supporters to try and demonstrate their strategic advantage over one another. 

Last Thursday, Nadler announced that he received the endorsement of the 1199SEIU, a powerful health care workers union with its finger on the pulse of New York state politics. This week, Maloney announced an endorsement from the Hell’s Kitchen Democratic Club, a political group within the boundaries of Nadler’s own district.
