WELLSVILLE — U.S. Senate candidate Wendy Long outlined several priorities of her campaign as the keynote speaker at Thursday night’s Allegany County Women’s Republican Club Meet the GOP Candidates Night.
Long, running on the Republican and Conservative Party lines against incumbent Democrat Charles Schumer, highlighted her opposition to career politicians, which she says Schumer represents, and her support of term limits during the event at the Wellsville Country Club. She also noted her support for securing the borders of the United States and cutting taxes and regulation, as well as helping small businesses, reforming the Veterans Administration for veterans, supporting citizens’ rights under the Second Amendment and her opposition to Common Core guidelines in education.
Long, who describes her campaign as a “grassroots” campaign, told the audience she invites citizens to follow her town hall meetings live at 7:30 p.m. Sundays on Facebook at Wendy Long 2016.
In general, Long spoke of the need to work together to protect the rights of Americans.
“The first thing we need to do is get rid of the entrenched political establishment,” she said Thursday.
