Senator Saland grateful for Cuomo's endorsement
New York state Senator Stephen Saland, a Republican running for reelection to the Poughkeepsie-area seat he has held since 1990, received a cross-party endorsement from Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo last week. One of four Republicans who broke ranks to vote for same-sex marriage last year, Saland faces Democrat Terry Gipson and conservative Neil Di Carlo – his primary opponent – in the general election. Saland spoke today with WAMC’s Alan Chartock.
