On Thursday evening, the Executive Committee of the Brooklyn Republican Party voted unanimously to endorse Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis in her bid for New York’s 11th Congressional District.
Malliotakis, a five term Assemblywoman and 2017 Republican nominee for Mayor of New York City, is one of the National Republican Congressional Committee’s top recruits and has received the support of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, House Whip Steve Scalise and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney. Roll Call has rated NY-11 as one of the most competitive House races in the country for the 2020 election cycle.
GOP County Chairman Ted Ghorra said, “On Thursday evening, the Executive Committee of the Brooklyn Republican Party proudly endorsed Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis in her campaign to unseat first term Congressman Max Rose.
“Nicole Malliotakis is the daughter of immigrants and understands the American Dream because she’s lived it. She’s a seasoned campaigner and fundraiser who has the skills and the resources needed to win this race. She’s a fighter who has the courage to take on Max Rose and his colleagues, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar and the misguided socialist push from the far left. She’s an experienced legislator who will take those skills to Washington and put them to work for the voters of Southwest Brooklyn and Staten Island.
“But, most importantly, Nicole Malliotakis has the principles and backbone to stand with the President and the House Republican leadership as they fight against the opioid epidemic, and for sentencing reforms, strong national defense, border security and the pro-growth policies that have given our city, state and nation record low unemployment across all demographics and a booming economy; she will make a great Congresswoman!”
Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis said, “I want to thank Chairman Ted Ghorra and the men and women of the Brooklyn Republican Party for their endorsement and support. Since his election, Max Rose has clearly shown us where he stands; he’s voted with Nancy Pelosi over 95% of the time and wasted our time and tax dollars on impeaching President Trump instead of focusing on issues that matter to voters, such as passing the US-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement, improving healthcare and bringing much needed infrastructure funding to fix our subways.”
On Monday, January 6th, Assemblywoman Malliotakis received the endorsement of the Executive Committee of the Staten Island Republican Party. She also announced this week that in 2019, her congressional campaign raised over $1,000,000 in her effort to defeat Max Rose.
