In what is becoming one of the most litigated primary and general election races in recent memory, Jack Martins filed an emergency motion today in federal court to try and move the general election to December. Michael Gormley reports in Newsday about this latest move.
Earlier today, we reported on an effort by GOP opponent Philip Pidot’s attorneys to recover their fees for representing the primary candidate. So far, they are winning the court contests, first to win the right to a GOP rematch and second, in keeping the general election in November.
Observers view a December general election as better for Martins who would not be running on the same date and line as Donald Trump. A December general election is also seen as turning out more Republicans and beneficial to the well funded Martins.
