As reported on Saturday night by Yossi Gestetner, "According to insiders knowledgeable of the discussions that took place in recent weeks, the Republican Leader of the NY State Senate Dean Skelos is ready to clear the way for Democrat Simcha Felder to run in an open election for the newly created Super Jewish State Senate District. ‘An Open Election’ here would mean that the GOP and Conservative lines will also try to carry Simcha Felder, to secure a Felder win."
"Skelos is ready to help Felder secure the GOP and Conservatives lines, and to accommodate other potential Republicans such such as David Storobin that he should run in a different district."
David Storobin, still hopeful of securing a victory in the special election in the 27th district, that took place on march 20th and is being fiercely challenged in court now, was outraged when I asked him if he would be willing to work together with the majority leader, that backed him him in the 27th, to decide on an agreed candidate for the super Jewish district. "Is this the Soviet Union?," he asked. "I am outraged at the mere idea of there being an "agreed candidate". Candidates should be agreed upon by the voters on election day," he said.
