Former State Senator David Storobin officially filed for term-limited Councilman Mike Nelson’s district today, setting the stage for what will likely be one of the few competitive general election race in heavily-Democratic New York City, Colin Campbell reports.
Asked by Politicker, at a fund-raiser for socially conservative Democratic mayoral candidate Erick Salgado, where he was at in his decision-making process. Mr. Storobin claimed to be undecided.
“You catch me at a different hour, I have a different feeling,” he explained. “I don’t know what … I’m going to do.”
Mr. Storobin, who noted he just lost a brutal re-election battle last year after narrowly winning an equally tough special election a few months before that, expressed reservations about entering a third campaign so quickly. On the other hand, he said he felt like he had a unique opportunity in an open Council contest containing some of his best electoral turf in Brooklyn’s Russian-American community.
