The New York Times today unexpectedly endorsed 37th State Senate District candidate Bob Cohen, a Republican, over the longtime incumbent Oppenheimer, who
has held the seat for 36 years. He’s a political newcomer. The Times editorial, saying Albany needs "sweeping change," explains, "He wants to cap state spending with adjustments for inflation, set long-term targets for Medicaid and schools, and eliminate all V.I.P. tax credits to politically connected insiders.”
"Mr. Cohen," the editorial goes on, "says he wants to work with both sides of the aisle, a revolutionary idea, especially in this polarized year. Senator Oppenheimer is a person of integrity, but she has too little to show for her years in Albany."
