My earlier post about why Mike Huckabee will bomb in big cities has aroused quite a bit of commenting at the CT Liveblog, one of which directed me to an interesting post from the New York Times’ City Room blog. It’s about Alice Lemos, a Jew from Queens who is campaigning to be a Huckabee delegate.
âIâm pro-life and Iâm socially conservative,â said Ms. Lemos, a 53-year-old legal secretary at a firm in Manhattan and a frequent contributor to a Web site called âJews for Life.â
âThe fact of the matter is that I donât like establishment Republicans in New York â I donât like the track record of Joe Bruno or George Pataki,â she said, referring to the State Senate majority leader and the former governor. âAlso, I think Rudy Giuliani did nothing to really build up the party at the grass-roots level. I believe in grass-roots politics.â
Regarding Huckabee, she said:
âHe reminds me a lot of Ronald Reagan,â Ms. Lemos said. âHe is positive and upbeat and comes from a humble background. I hope that I can help others get to know him.â
I guess Siena College missed her in its random survey.
