Babs Donno follows in the footsteps of Maureen O'Connell to get the Nassau County Conservative Party nomination even though they both have reported pro-choice views. O'Connell with the help of the Conservative party lost badly to Craig Johnson last year. Donno is on track to make the 2 for 2 for the C's in the 7th Senate District.
The nod for Babs comes with some caveats "Bogsted said Donno "has a profile that shows she has a good shot to win.." He said "she's not a rank-and-file Republican, so to speak, and has a bit of an independent streak." He cited her record on the local school board, and noted that she'd cut costs as mayor. As to social issues, he said, "she will not vote against Conservative Republican positions" that will come before the chamber surch as parental notification on abortions."
Babs wrote a letter to Chairman Bogsted which we're going to touch on in another post. But to hint at future things, both Donno and Bogsted ought not to hi-lite Donno's school board work.
I'm just saying.
More to come.
