Support Democrat DuWayne Gregory’s bid to unseat Republican New York House Rep Peter King in the state’s 2nd District.
Gregory is a Long Island native, an Army veteran, and has served in the Suffolk County legislature since 2008. He supports a $15 minimum wage, paid family leave, equal pay, and measures that seek environmental justice–laws that ensure that the poor and the marginalized aren’t shunted into the most polluted areas.
He will fight Right to Work legislation, which undermines unions. He is furious about the constraints on State and Local Tax (SALT) deductions imposed by the GOP tax bill and will do his damnedest to reverse them. He supports laws that address climate change. He fiercely defends Planned Parenthood and the right to choose.
Gregory ran against longtime Republican incumbent Peter King in 2016 and lost decisively, getting 37.9 percent of the vote to King’s 62.1 percent. Gregory will also face three other Democrats in the June 26, 2018 primary. The Cook Political Report rates the seat as Solid Republican.
