Thank you for joining me for this episode of the Albany Update.
We’ll be exploring the U.S. House of Representatives recent vote to protect the right to contraception. Social conservatives are rightly criticizing the vote for many reasons, but one of them is the lack of religious liberty protections in the proposed legislation.
In this week’s program, we’ll also begin profiling a few of the congressional and state senate primaries occurring on August 23. Today, we’ll look at the coming races in the 19th and 23rd Congressional Districts, as well as a State Senate primary in the 25th District.
Finally, a giant in New York’s conservative movement passed away on July 24. He was a friend to our movement and a strong ally in the fight for life and liberty in this state. I’ll tell you who he is, and more about him momentarily.
Let’s get started.
