SYRACUSE, NY– Following Bernie Sanders’s endorsement of Dana Balter, Katko for Congress Campaign Manager Tom Haag released the following statement:
“Bernine Sanders is a self proclaimed socialist. His formal endorsement of Dana Balter today, in which he calls her a ‘strong progressive,’ confirms what we’ve known for over two years: If elected, Balter will be a rubber stamp for the far-left and Sanders’s extreme agenda.
“Balter has already come out in favor of Medicare for All, Sanders’s signature plan to implement a government takeover of healthcare. What’s more, she champions Albany’s dangerous bail reform law and wants to expand it to the federal level. Sanders’s endorsement of Balter sends a clear message to voters: Balter is way too extreme for Central New York.”
