Steve Forbes Endorses Wendy Long in NY Senate Race

By    |   Wednesday, 06 June 2012 10:17 AM

Steve Forbes, chairman of Forbes Media and a former presidential candidate, endorsed Wendy Long for the New York Republican Senate primary being held June 26.

Long, an attorney, clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. She faces competition from Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos and Rep. Bob Turner in the primary contest. Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand awaits the winner.

"I am delighted to be one of Wendy's supporters,” Forbes said in a statement released by the Long campaign. “She has the principles and the background to be a superb U.S. Senator . . . She is a constitutionalist with a commitment to limited self-government under the Constitution.”

Forbes also likes Long’s economic views. “She is deeply worried about the devastating impact that pending tax increases will have in 2013 if Republicans don't prevail in November,” he said. “She would work for lower marginal tax rates, starting with the corporate tax, which is an albatross around the neck of U.S. companies.”

Forbes also agrees with Long on currency issues. “Wendy would support a stable dollar that doesn't swing wildly against gold . . . Wendy will push for a return to sound money and exchange rate stability.”
