News, views and commentary on Long Island, state and national politics.

Bruce Blakeman, the former Nassau president officer now running for US Senate, has added Roger Bogsted, chairman of the Nassau Conservatives, to his list of endorsements. That may show an unusual agreement between him and the county GOP. Bogsted's letter, as released by the Blakeman campaign, states in part:

"Bruce Blakeman has a proven track record and we need him to be our voice in Washington. Bruce Blakeman understands the issues that the people of this state face each and every day. That is why I support his U.S. Senate campaign."
