East Hampton Democratic Committee and Town Board Endorse John Avlon for Congress

“NY01 had been largely written off as being unwinnable until John Avlon entered the race in February.  John’s successful career as a presidential historian, author and journalist has been characterized by deep patriotism and common sense problem solving, making him an ideal candidate to meet this moment.  We believe that John’s rational policies and strong convictions can galvanize and unite Democratic, Independent and even Republican voters across the district who are tired of divisive politics and long for a return to civility and bipartisan solutions.  Our committee is confident that John Avlon will be the first Democrat in over a decade to win this seat and we proudly endorse his candidacy.” Anna Skrenta, Chairwoman East Hampton Democrats
