Hey, I was there when all this happened...It was wicked grandstanding by Morano and its hard to outgrandstand MacKay.
Morano wanted the line for a friend of his and MacKay wanted the Democrat to get the line as a favor for Andrew Cuomo...That's the way I saw it.
Besides, NYC politics is complicated because the county chairs are Fulani people and they control city endorsements but MacKay wrote the state party rules to prevent locals in cities over one million people from endorsing state candidates. Its all a mish-mash of egos, intrigue, power and money.
Shocking to find gambling in a casino, isn't it ?
