Lawrence Zacarese and Phil Boyle, candidates in the Republican primary for Suffolk County sheriff.

Calling all Republican voters in Suffolk County:

If you want to drain the swamp at home, we’re with you. And you can start Tuesday with the GOP primary for county sheriff, a race that represents everything that stinks about politics in Suffolk.

Your vote is an opportunity to take a stand against party bosses who rig races. Against cross-endorsement scams that rob all voters of real choices. Against backroom deals in which political leaders divide the spoils of victory, rewarding operatives with patronage jobs regardless of merit.
