Hat’s Off to Wendy Long

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Jun• 27•12

Constitutional scholar Wendy Long was a veritable unknown in New York politics five months ago.  Today she is the Republican and Conservative nominee for United States Senate to face Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in November. That’s no easy feat. Ms. Long has wowed political leaders in her short time in the public view through her brains and convictions — and also her hard work.  The latter is what has impressed me the most. The political business is grueling, well beyond what members of the public can imagine, and Ms. Long has attacked the campaign trail with everything she’s got. 

Ms. Long’s win last night hurts. In prevailing, she defeated Congressman Bob Turner who is among the finest men I know. It will take me a long time to shake that off, but the loss is made easier by the quality of the adversary. Wendy Long.  Watch her.
