Making full use of social media and the internet, the Brooklyn GOP’s most notable spokesperson of late >>> BOB CAPANO <<< has weighed in on Ted Cruz' "New York Values" controversy, made so prominent by both Ted Cruz and Donald Trump at the most recent GOP presidential debate
Capano’s statement kicks-off a quick Democrat-Republican dust-up with another Bay Ridgeite also mentioned as a City Council aspirant
Showing a continuing willingness to take on public figures for their controversial statements, Bob Capano has shifted his sights from a target on the extreme left of the Democrat Party to one on the extreme right of the GOP. He also has jacked the level of the targeted opponent in front of him from someone akin to a very local club fighter, Linda Sarsour, up to a championship caliber puncher fully-accredited on the national stage, Ted Cruz.
As he often does when making his public statements, Bob Capano made a simultaneous announcements in the form of an internet press release and as a more personal Facebook posting.
Here’s what Bob had to say about the Ted Cruz remarks:
“The disparaging comments about New York by Ted Cruz in the GOP debate were disappointing. As I have been saying for almost two decades of involvement in Brooklyn and New York City Republican politics, we must work to create a two-party town by demonstrating to voters the benefits of core Conservative Republican principles like school choice, accountability in government, and policies that promote job growth. This is the message Ted Cruz should have delivered. We can not just give up New York to liberalism.”
A BAY RIDGE DEMOCRAT IS VERY QUICK TO RESPOND --- AND CAPANO PUSHED BACK JUST AS FAST
It’s quite interesting to note that Kevin Peter Carroll, one of the Democrats mentioned as a leading candidate for the NY City Council seat now held by Vinny Gentile, quickly responded to Capano’s statement against the Cruz remarks with a general broadside against several nationally prominent Republicans. For his part, Bob Capano pushed back just as quickly using as examples of good New Yorkers several local conservative GOP stalwarts.
