Give Dave Gugerty credit for dedication.

Gugerty, the chief of staff for the Nassau County legislative Democrats, spent hours on Tuesday at Hofstra University before the presidential debate waiting for a chance to get a sign promoting his wife Helene's  campaign for County Court judge on camera.

He was finally successful during MSNBC's Martin Bashir's program, according to a Democratic spokesman.

Gugerty, a principal law clerk to State Supreme Court Justice Jeffrey S. Brown, is running for the court on the Democratic ticket.
