Haber will kick off the campaign at noon on March 27 at the VFW Post 5253 on Searingtown Road in Albertson. Haber formed a campaign committee for his expected Senate run last week.

The race is expected to be among the most competitive on Long Island. Democrats have a nearly 19,000-person voter enrollment advantage in the 7th Senate District, according to the State Board of Elections.
