Suffolk GOP, candidate in real-estate coincidence

Suffolk Republican Chairman John Jay LaValle has made no secret of his loathing of congressional contender Randy Altschuler, so it was a big surprise when party’s new Holtsville office and Altschuler’s campaign headquarters ended up across the street from one another.

“It’s just a coincidence,” said Rob Ryan, Altschuler spokesman, “We were just looking for the best price,” when they learned of the party move last month. But he added, “We think its great. It’ll be that much easier after Randy becomes the nominee to coordinate with the county committee.”
