Less than two weeks from the Nov. 6 election, U.S Senate candidate Wendy Long will make a stop in Kings Point Tuesday.
The Republican challenger to incumbent Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is an invited guest at a reception hosted by businessman Curtis Katz. The private event at 10 Hamptworth Dr. is open to the media.
A Manhattan mother, wife and attorney, Long is looking to unseat Gillibrand who is seeking election to her first full term. Gillibrand was tapped by former Gov. David Paterson in 2009 to fill the seat vacated by Hillary Clinton.
Long attended Northwestern University School of Law and Harvard Law School, receiving her J.D. From Northwestern, where she was an editor of the law review. She served as a law clerk to Judge Ralph K. Winter of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York, and then to Justice Clarence Thomas of the Supreme Court of the United States.
Long is a member of the New York City Parks Mounted Auxiliary Unit.
