Vito Lopez Still on the Hunt for Someone to Challenge Daniel Squadron
This morning City Hall updates Vito Lopez’s campaign to do in Daniel Squadron, who represents Lower Manhattan and sections of Brooklyn in the State Senate:
Brooklyn Democratic Chairman Vito Lopez is still looking for a candidate to run against state Sen. Daniel Squadron, after his former chief of staff Debbie Feinberg decided against running and instead took a job with the city Finance Department. Another potential candidate, Brooklyn Strategies founder Evan Thies, says he’s friends with Squadron, his consulting business is growing and he’s not running for anything. Lopez isn’t just looking in Squadron’s district: With redistricting looming in Albany, he could try to bend the lines any way he wants. Still, the senator has no opposition for the moment: “The guy that’s happiest today is definitely Squadron,” a source said.
