Jeanine Pirro Gets RNC Endorsements

Wednesday, 17 August 2005 12:00 AM

"It indicates they're a troubled campaign right now," said former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer. "They're trying to get back on some sort of track. I think they're in deep trouble."

"Jeanine Pirro is dynamic, articulate and she is going to win in November 2006," declared RNC member Alexander Treadwell, a former New York state GOP chairman, in a statement distributed by the Pirro campaign. "New York deserves a full-time senator who puts our interests first."

"Jeanine Pirro is a fighter who will work hard in Washington to deliver for New York, and will not be distracted by campaigning in Iowa, New Hampshire and other presidential primary states," added Treadwell's fellow RNC member Jennifer Saul Yaffa, a veteran GOP fundraiser.

The statements play off Pirro's main campaign theme so far, that Clinton wants to use her re-election as a stepping stone to running for president in 2008 and will thus neglect New York.

Pirro stuck with that theme Wednesday in accepting the endorsements.

"She should tell New Yorkers the truth about her plans: is she committed to New York or is she running for president?" Pirro said. "She promised to serve out her full term in February 2000, and New Yorkers deserve the same candor this time around."

Also seeking the GOP Senate nomination are Manhattan lawyer Edward Cox, a son-in-law of the late President Richard Nixon, and William Brenner, a little-known tax attorney from Sullivan County.

Pirro, who like Clinton is an abortion and gay rights supporter, was encouraged to run for the Senate by state GOP Chairman Stephen Minarik and 46 of the state's 62 county GOP chairmen.

The more conservative Spencer was dismissive of the Treadwell and Saul Yaffa endorsements.

"They come from the same clique of liberal Republicans who think that a liberal Republican can beat Hillary Clinton," the former mayor said.
