Brooklyn's American Heritage Democratic Club endorses Harrison

Harrison's campaign press release;

Bay Ridge's American Heritage endorses Steve Harrison with 100 percent of the vote
13th Congressional District Democratic Candidate now has club endorsements on both sides of the Verrazano

(Brooklyn/Staten Island) Democratic Congressional candidate Steve Harrison’s (13th District NY Staten Island/Southwest Brooklyn) latest endorsement shows he has strong support on both the Staten Island and Brooklyn sides of the Congressional District.

Bay Ridge's American Heritage Democratic club nearly unanimously endorsed him over potential primary opponent Coney Island Councilman Domenic Recchia on March 10. One hundred percent of those voting to endorse a candidate voted for Steve, with a handful of "no endorsement" votes.

Harrison adds the American Heritage nod to his collection of club endorsements which include the Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) which unanimously endorsed him locally and nationally as well as near 90 percent support from the Staten Island Democratic Association (SIDA) and the Democratic Organization of Richmond County (DOR).

Other Harrison endorsements include: Ms. Magazine founder Gloria Steinem, former judge and assembly member Frank Barbaro and 60th AD district leader Ralph Perfetto, who founded the American Heritage club in November 1996 with his wife Phyllis.

The Primary winner will face Vito Fossella, New York City's only Republican House member. Harrison received a higher percentage of the vote than any Democrat ever under the congressional district's current configuration in 2006 against Fossella.

Does it still count if he was the president of the group?
