NY Dem Rejected By Own Local Party

Anna Throne-Holst has received endorsements from DC Democrats like Reps. Steny Hoyer and Steve Israel, but has struggled to get any support from local lawmakers in the Democratic primary for New York’s 1st Congressional District. This trend continued yesterday when the local Suffolk Independence Party decided to endorse venture capitalist David Calone over Throne-Holst.

After being a member of the Suffolk Independence Party for nearly her entire time on the Southampton Town Board, Throne-Holst must be shocked that she was snubbed for their endorsement. When the people who know you best reject your candidacy, you’re doing it wrong.
