Suozzi Statement on Mazi Pilip’s Closed-Door Event with Extreme Republican Party Boss Mike Johnson
Pilip Hasn’t Held Public Campaign Event Since Last Week
Glen Cove, NY – Today, Mazi Pilip held another closed-door event with extreme Republican party boss Mike Johnson. The event is noteworthy, as Pilip hasn’t held a public campaign event since last Friday and she continues to refuse to debate Suozzi.
In response, Tom Suozzi released the following statement:
“Mazi Pilip’s closed-door event with Mike Johnson today makes one thing crystal clear: she will go to Washington to do the bidding of her Republican bosses, not the people of Long Island and Northeast Queens. Johnson is one of the most extreme members of the Republican Party. He wants to implement a national abortion ban, slash Social Security and Medicare, and block any progress on securing our border because he believes chaos will benefit Donald Trump in November.”
“The voters face a clear choice. I’ve been a bipartisan leader my entire career and I’m willing to work with Democrats and Republicans to get things done. Mazi Pilip has spent this campaign in hiding, emerging only to repeat talking points from her Republican bosses who want to ban abortion and continue the chaos at the border. She is unvetted, untested, unprepared, and she will only make things worse.”
