With their hands raised in the air, members of the Staten Island Democratic Committee overwhelmingly voted Tuesday night to endorse Max Rose as their candidate for Congress.

The 31 year old war veteran was one of seven candidates hoping to win the party’s backing for the Congressional seat representing Staten Island and a slice of Southern Brooklyn.

Former Congressman Michael Grimm, who served seven months in prison for federal tax evasion,

is running for his old seat against the Republican who succeeded him in Washington, Dan Donovan. Both Republicans have aligned themselves with President Trump:

“The people of Staten Island are owed a better kind of representation,” Staten Island Democratic Party Chairman John Gulino said. “I think Michael Grimm entering the race makes a big difference.”

A big difference, but one that will still present a challenge for the Democrats;

even though they outnumber Republicans in the borough by five to three, Republicans have emerged victorious in a majority of Congressional races in the last 30 years.
