Reason #8 to vote for Michael Arcuri for Congress comes to me courtesy of Charles Evangelista, the Chair of the Ontario County Republican Party (Ontario County includes Geneva, which makes up the north west corner of New York's 24th district). Evangelista spilled the beans when he told a Fox News reporter that Sherwood Boehlert is "probably one of the last of the moderate Republicans".
Translation: Ray Meier is no moderate Republican. He's a right winger who will follow the new extremist Republican Party line.
If you're a moderate Republican or independent voter in our district, you can't count on Ray Meier to represent you well. Our district should not be represented by our a local equivalent of Rick Santorum.
When even a local Republican chief admits that Ray Meier is no moderate, you know you've got an extremist on your hands. Now, when all three branches the federal government is being run into the ground by right wing ideologues, the last thing we should do is add fuel to the fire.
