“The Conservative Party of Kings County is proud to endorse Simcha Felder for State Senate,” said Chairman Jerry Kassar. “Simcha is a true conservative who shares our values.

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Conservative Party,” said Felder. “I’ve run with the support of the Conservative Party before, and I’m proud to be the Conservative candidate this year. I know that the hardworking men and women of the Conservative Party won’t rest till Election Day so that our community can finally send a true conservative Senator to Albany.”
