What’s on the table

Westchester County Executive George Latimer announced his intention to primary incumbent Jamaal Bowman for the Democrat nomination for CD-16.

The district is not considered competitive so whomever wins the Democrat primary will likely walk away with the general election.

Both Latimer and Bowman are bad on 2A. Which is worse is debatable.

That being said, 2A supporters should back Latimer in the primary. The district is represented right now by a gun control advocate. That won’t change after the election. However, if Latimer wins the primary he would have to give up his job as County Executive giving us an opportunity to get a better candidate into that office. That is what is on the table for the ’24 election in the district.
