“I’m going to be supporting whomever is the Republican candidate,” he said. “Most important thing for Republicans is to make sure we maintain control of the Senate.”

“As much as I dislike Serph,” said Bart, “I don’t think taking him down solves anything.”
Bart, who is embroiled in a lawsuit and ongoing campaign to oust Serph as county leader, wanted two points made clearer. First, the headline didn’t indicate that Bart will support the Republican nominee, which may or may not be Serph.

Brooklyn Democratic Senator Martin Connor.
