Statement From Senate Republican Leader Rob Ortt

On Bill to Drop Disgraced LG Brian Benjamin From the Ballot


Once again, Democrats in Albany are prioritizing party politics with their latest plan to change the rules for their own political benefit. Just a few weeks ago, Senate Democrats across the state gleefully announced their support for Brian Benjamin. Now, days after having their gerrymandered district lines thrown out by New York’s highest court, they want to change the rules to allow Kathy Hochul to dump him from her ticket to protect their political interests.


This repeated pattern of political self-dealing is shameful, and New Yorkers deserve better. Any member of the legislature who supports this bill is complicit in this corruption and should be voted out this November.
