New York Republican Convention Backs Tenther Opponent Of Child Labor Laws For U.S. Senate

Late last week, New York Republicans gathered in Rochester to select their U.S. Senate candidates strongly backed tenther attorney Wendy Long as their top candidate. Long received over 47 percent of the vote, with Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos and U.S. Rep. Bob Turner also clearing the 25 percent threshold required to appear on the GOP’s primary ballot. A former law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas, Long wrote a book review praising a decision by her former boss that would lead to everything from national child labor laws to the federal ban on whites-only lunch counters being declared unconstitutional.
