Kiryas Joel, NY – U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor visited today Kiryas Yoel, the large and fast-growing Hasidic Community in Orange County NY. His mission? To secure support for GOP Congresswoman Nan Hayworth who is in what is considered a tough race with Sean Patrick Maloney.
The Friday before the 2010 vote, Mr. Cantor also visited this community to push for Hayworth against the then-incumbent John Hall. Ultimately however, Hayworth’s margin of victory was larger than the Hasidic Vote in the area. In addition, a portion of the Hasidic Vote who is organized against the majority force in KY, voted for Hall.
Dean Skelos, the Majority Leader of the NY State Senate also joined the visit, together with Congresswoman Hayworth.
