Only 4 days ago, Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin (R) garnered the support of the Westhester County GOP in his plans to challenges US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Friday morning, however, two weeks after the initial announcement of his campaign, Carvin has had a change of heart.
According to the Associated Press and other published reports, Carvin told a gathering of Republicans in Rochester he would not continue his bid. According to a report in the Washington Post, Carvin said he announced plans to run against Nassau County comptroller George Maragos to give vote a choice. New York City attorney Wendy Long and U.S. Rep. Bob Turner remain in the field.
