Rick Santorum Reads Queens-Politics

With national figures like the fmr. GOP Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum reading Queens-Politics.com, we’re wondering who else on the national level reads the blog. A QP contributor passed along a copy of our article announcing Santorum’s exit from the race and had it autographed in Pennsylvania. ICMI: this photo was originally posted on our extremely active FB page. Be sure to Like it.

Does this mean President Obama reads about Toby Stavisky and the North Flushing Senior Center?

Ciao Santorum!

Rick Santorum announced today that he has suspended his bid to become the Republican nominee for President of the United States.

A few notable Queens pols were waiting in the wings to spearhead the Santorum campaign in New York City, but it looks like they will never get the chance.

“The fact that he got so far without the money, the media, or the establishment on his side is astonishing” said Elio Forcina, a staunch Santorum supporter and former Assembly candidate that would have assisted fmr. state Senator Serph Maltese in spearheading Santorum’s campaign in New York City.

“His campaign was a great inspiration for all whom one day wish to serve the public. Santorum never wavered from his convictions and that kind of courage is very rare in Queens County…besides, who else would stick up for the unborn? I doubt the immoral public policy positions of Tony Avella and Toby Stavisky would be our voice in Queens” added Forcina.

The former Pennsylvania senator used up a large chunk of campaign time away from his family.

Santorum was largely considered the under-dog candidate throughout the race, yet by some means he won eleven primaries and managed to outlast Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, and Herman Cain.

“Our candidate has withdrawn, we were outspent, and it never really got off its feet,” said Serph Maltese who was one of the state co-chairmen for Santorum including Bob DiCarlo and Mike Rendino.

According to Maltese, “Santorum was supposed to come to New York, but when Romney swept the deck it poured cold water on it,” adding, “the message is clear, those who want a better America will have to unite.”

Asked how he felt about frontrunner Mitt Romney Maltese said, “Romney could be a vast improvement over Barack Obama.”

Hundreds Attend N.E Queens Republican Debate

Local Republican Club hosts Presidential Debate at the Clearview Golf Course. Here’s a breakdown of the spirited event:

City Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Rockaway) represented Mitt Romney. Ulrich believed Romney is the best candidate because he has the most appeal to independent voters.

Paul Neydavood represented Newt Gingrich and touted Newt’s long list of  ‘accomplishments.’

City Councilman Dan Halloran represented Ron Paul and impressed the crowd with his knowledge of constitutional law lending credit to his alleged bid for U.S Congress.

Elio Forcina represented Rick Santorum and compared the Catholic bashing of Santorum as the worst reaming since JFK. He made a comparison of the treatment of Frank Padavan during the state senate race in 2010,
