Chairman Craig Eaton was overwhelmingly re-elected with about 1000 votes cast for him. His victory was well deserved and I am honored to have had the opportunity to nominate him this year for re-election.
Chairman Eaton oversaw the successful efforts in Brooklyn for State Senator Marty Golden, Congressman Michael Grimm (after the contentious primary against a former vice-chair of the Brooklyn GOP), Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis and, most recently, Congressman Bob Turner in a race which received national attention.
Turner's race would not have been possible without Chairman Eaton's work behind the scenes getting Bob to run a second time. Once Bob announced he would be running, Chairman Eaton put out the call and as the saying goes - they came. Hundreds of volunteers from Brooklyn worked tirelessly on the Turner Campaign. Brooklyn carried the district delivering Congressman Turner the win - winning 2-to-1.
