NEWBURGH - Orange County Conservative Party Chairman John DeLessio has announced his support for Republican Rick Lazio for governor.
said Lazio is the right person for the job and has already had a try at a statewide office.
"I thought he
ran a good campaign for senator when he
ran against Hillary Clinton.
That was a tough, tough race and probably at that particular year, nobody could have won.
But, I think he
is now he
is a better candidate and the message is crystal clear and it's a good year for him," said DeLessio
However, with many Democrats losing to Republican challengers last fall, and in particular, the special Massachusetts Senate race last month, DeLessio
said there could be a continuation of that trend with Lazio in November.
