Well nothing may come of this but, county officials who have threatened to challenge New York's political order in response to the continued financial burden of Medicaid, are actually now running candidates against incumbents. They had threatened before. Now they're doing it. There's one from each party and both are challenging a majority from Long Island.
According to the New York Times, Joshua Ketover is a Long Island lawyer specializing in personal-injury work is challenging Dean Skelos, Republican of Rockville Centre, the Senate's deputy majority leader. Charles D. Lavine, a Glen Cove councilman, will be running against David Sidikman, a Democrat in the Assembly.
Both of the challengers have the endorsement of Tom Suozzi, who has been pushing on this issue and threatening this challenge for months.
