NY House Candidate Donovan: 'I Want to Un-tax People'

Dan Donovan, Republican candidate for New York's U.S. House District 11 seat in Tuesday's special election, says he differs from his Democratic opponent Vincent Gentile because he wants to "un-tax" his constituents.

"My opponent is a tax-and-spend politician. I’m an untax-and-spend public servant," Donovan said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York. "I want to un-tax people and let them spend their own money because they spend it better than the government spends their money."

Donovan told host John Catsimatidis that transportation will be an issue for him, as will helping people still displaced from Superstorm Sandy. He said Homeland Security is another concern for the district since New York City is "still the No. 1 target in the world."

New York City needs a Republican in Congress since both chambers are now controlled by the GOP, Donovan said, but added he will be a voice for everyone in his district if elected. The election will fill the seat held by Republican Michael Grimm, who won re-election in November, but resigned in January amid federal fraud and tax-evasion charges.

"I will serve Democrats, Independents, Republicans, Conservatives equally well by being that one lone voice down there in the majority," he said.

Donovan was the prosecutor who handled the Eric Garner "chokehold" case.
