WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – The New York Times has endorsed Sean Patrick Maloney in the race for New York’s 18th Congressional District.

Maloney, a Democrat, is trying to unseat Republican Rep. Nan Hayworth of Bedford.

Maloney is a former aide to President Bill Clinton and two New York governors, David Paterson and Eliot Spitzer.

The Times wrote, “Despite her Tea Party support, Dr. Hayworth, a retired ophthalmologist, tries to cast herself as a moderate, particularly on women’s issues. Yet she has favored limiting contraception coverage for employees and voted to defund Planned Parenthood. Mr. Maloney promises to support health care reform, help the middle class and oppose tax cuts for the rich. We recommend Mr. Maloney.”

The newly redrawn 18th Congressional District includes Orange, Putnam, and parts of Dutchess and Westchester counties.

William Anthony:

But did they say he is not an invested resident of the District only having bought a place so he could be fronted by the Democratic Party.

If he was a long time resident maybe he could be considered as a serious candidate since he might know real District residents and may have gotten grass roots money instead of big time cash from non-New Yorkers & non-District people.

Why is New York Times so heavily invested in carpetbaggers ?
