The state’s top elected Republican is calling on New York’s two U.S. senators to do their jobs and start governing.
Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan accused Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both Democrats, of jeopardizing New York’s interests in Washington by their continued attacks on President Trump.
With Trump hailing from New York, Flanagan (R-Suffolk County) said the state has a “unique opportunity to have the eyes and ears of the executive branch in Washington focused on New York.””But, the national Democrats from New York are throwing that away all because they want to play partisan politics,” he said.
Gillibrand has voted against all of Trump’s cabinet-level nominations, with the exception of Nikki Haley for UN ambassador.
