This is an original story by Kimberly Wilder, based on internet research and a phone interview with 1st Congressional District candidate Zabby.
In the First District race for Congress, the well-publicized choices in the Tuesday, September 14th, Conservative Party primary are: Chris Cox, George Demos, and Randy Altschuler. There is an OTB/Opportunity to Ballot in the race, which opens up a line in a primary race for the chance to write-in. Community activist Zabby is asking residents to write-in her name.
The First Congressional District on Long Island covers parts of Eastern Long Island, including most of the Town of Smithtown, and all of the towns of Brookhaven, Riverhead, Southold, Southampton, East Hampton and Shelter Island.
Zabby is a Brookhaven resident who is active in civics and government. Zabby — who uses one name for her full name, and asks voters to write in only “Zabby” — is also a Public Access TV producer and PATV advocate. In addition, she hosts a show on college radio WUSB Stony Brook 90.1FM called, “A Woman’s Perspective On Politics“, which presents a Social-Political-Economic Alternative Worldview.
Zabby is running on the following points: Anti-stupidity, Anti-Waste, and Pro-Life.
The incumbent in this race is Democrat Tim Bishop, and the race has received a lot of national attention. Both Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich have made endorsements. There is an article about the race at CQ Politics: here.
