Sen. Schumer endorses Kaplowitiz in state Senate race
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) was in Somers today to endorse Democratic state Senate candidate Mike Kaplowitz.
Schumer says it's important for Democrats to win solid majorities in Albany and promote middle-class interests in New York. He says he believes Kaplowitz, a small businessman, cares about the average voter.
Kaplowitz says he looks forward to becoming a state senator and working in partnership with Schumer.
Supporters of Greg Ball, Kaplowitz's Republican challenger in the 40th state Senate District, were also on hand for the endorsement. At one point, both sides got heated and police stepped in to calm the situation.
