Bob from Manhattan declines judicial nomination

He is running for Congress! And with this kind of party support it will be a fun month;

“It’s over. Completely over,” said Guy V. Molinari, the former Staten Island borough president who had led the effort to seek an opportunity for Mr. Fossella to run.

“I think we had a good chance of getting him to run before this,” Mr. Molinari said. “But we ran out of time and Bob Straniere is not that kind of team player. He has a terrible, terrible record and we simply were counting on the wrong man. All the scurrying around that we did turned out to be for naught.”

Kind of funny that Bob Straniere, who lives in Manhattan, was nominated for a judicial position in the borough he lives in, Manhattan, and declined it to run for Congress in Staten Island. He really has the interest of Staten Islanders and Brooklynites as his top priority. So much so he said he will move to the district if he wins! Don't fret;

“Robert Straniere earned himself the Republican nomination for the 13th District,” said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee. “And we are fully behind him and his campaign.”

Unfortunately that support does not include money or actual, well, support.
