Lynbrook's Becker eyes run againt McCarthy

Republican Nassau County Legis. Francis X. Becker of Lynbrook is seriously considering a run against Democratic U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy of Garden City.

“I’ve talked it over with my wife, and it’s a good time in my life to do it,” Becker, 57, said Thursday evening.

He said he has the blessing of county GOP chairman Joseph Mondello, but wants to discuss the possibility of also getting the Conservative line before making a final decision.
