Chris Day Announces Congressional Bid Against Lowey

The son of Rockland's new county executive wants to be the GOP candidate for the 17th Congressional District.

The son of Rockland County's new County Executive, Chris Day is seeking the Republican nomination for the 17th Congressional District seat now held by Rep. Nita Lowey (D-Rockland, Westchester.)

Redrawn in 2013, New York’s 17th Congressional District now includes all of Rockland County plus central and northwestern Westchester County. Now in her 13th term in Congress, Lowey is the ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee.

In his announcement on YouTube, Day cited overdevelopment, taxes and high-quality jobs as residents' chief worries and said he shares those concerns. 

"I've lived a life of service," said Day, who ran his father's campaign for County Executive in 2013. "I've spent time in the U.S. Army serving in two wars. i've seen combat, raised a family. I'm a homeowner and I currently work in the private sector ... I look forward to seeing you out on the campaign trail." 

County Executive Day told the Nyack Free Press that he backed his son's bid.

Election Day 2014 is Nov. 4.

My oh my. Sensationalism at it's best! I'm not sure how the topic was drifted to Obama, Obamacare, Russia, China, Ponzi schemes, etc. I guess we'll see how this race goes. Good luck to Chris Day.

Congresspeople do more than local stuff - they do international stuff. They fund the military, foreign aid, the IRS, Obamacare - Power of the Purse (Federalist 58), entitlements, Obamacare... Obamacare..... Military Pensions.... THAAD.... so Chris should get busy and take positions - stake out the turf!!

Lilly: It's all related. It's all about one political ideology versus another. It's all about what is best for our Country and what is destroying it - collectively. Happy that you support Chris Day but hope you will join us in our push back on the Liberal ideology that is destroying America.
