Once a King is crowned, it takes a true maestro to take on the throne for the crown.
Best e-mail we’ve received today comes from Howard Kudler, a Merrick social studies teacher who is the endorsed Democratic candidate against Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford).
Kudler, who lost a 2008 Assembly race to David McDonough (R-Merrick), does not appear to have a campaign Web site (Update: It’s coming soon), has not registered a campaign fundraising account and his Twitter feed has a grand total of six followers (including us). His ActBlue page – a staple for Democratic congressional candidates, shows he’s raised $0. Still, he presents himself as a spirited candidate angry about a lack of media coverage.
King reported $1.7 million in his latest campaign finance filing.
Here’s an excerpt of what Kudler has to say, which came in an e-mail titled “Am I still non existent?”:
I am an interesting guy. I have something to say to the voters. And I am not your traditional Democratic Party Boy. That’s why Jay Jacobs and the crew will also not seriously promote me. They asked
Democracy should not be run by hypocrites. If you give me the banner then let me fly it.
(Hint-hint-There is a story in here, and if you coax me right, you just might get it.)
