Greg Ball calls out GOP over convention

GOP state Assemblyman Greg Ball is challenging his party head-on, arguing local Republicans have stacked the deck against him being endorsed again.

Ball is being challenged by Somers Supervisor Beth Murphy in the 40th Senate District. Ball contends a Westchester and Putnam GOP convention planned for last night is illegal and thinks a court could block it.

According to Ball, the convention is illegal because it does not include Republicans from the Dutchess County portion of his district.

The GOP chairs in both Westchester and Putnam say they believe the convention is legal, but admit an endorsement could be postponed with a motion from the floor of the convention.
