A Republican New York state senator is working to ensure that his neighboring district returns to GOP hands in November.
Republican Greg Ball is the state Senate Republican Committee co-chairman, and is hosting a series of forums aimed at unseating the Democratic senator in the 41st District – freshman Terry Gipson. He held the first forum Wednesday night in Putnam County.
“We never should’ve lost this seat and if we can remain united regardless of who comes out of the primary, we will win this seat back,” Greg Ball says. “Senator Gipson does not represent the need of this district to have an independent voice, a truly independent voice, or the conservative base that is certainly a big part of this Dutchess-Putnam district. We can take him out, we just need to remain united unlike in the previous cycle.” (AUDIO)
