Press Release: Dole, a former five-term Senator from Kansas who served as Senate Majority Leader and former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, was the Republican Presidential nominee in 1996.
Rumsfeld, a former four-term Congressman from Illinois who served as White House Chief of Staff and U.S. Permanent Representative to NATO, was also Secretary of Defense under two U.S. Presidents.
Dole called Reyes, an attorney running in the September 13th Republican Primary for State Senate, “An outstanding leader who will fight for you and your family in Albany. He won’t tolerate the political nonsense that has done so much damage to New York’s economy.”
“Juan is smart, tough minded, decent and hardworking. He is a solid conservative who stands for lower taxes, less government spending, and a strong emphasis on economic growth in the private sector.”
Reyes, a former counsel to several city agencies in the Giuliani Administration, said he was “humbled and grateful to have the endorsement of two giants in the Republican Party.”
“My top priority is to help get New York’s economy moving and bringing new jobs and industries to our state,” said Reyes,”Republicans understand that private sector experience like mine is invaluable with New York’s current economic condition, and I urge every Republican voter to come out on Thursday, September 13th and help me win this critical election.”
