      It’s still there. It’s just not on the front cover anymore. Who can blame them. No one knows who this Rice is.

    I heard there were a lot of people who signed Rice’s peitions who never saw them before…

    The Democrats were chatting about that, I heard.

    Hope that’s not true, for your sake and for the sake of your party…

    In Congress, Rep. Michael McMahon Is Rated `The Most Centrist’

    Who is at the exact political center of the House of Representatives? Congressman Michael McMahon, the Democrat representing Staten Island and Bay Ridge for the past 14 months, that’s who!

    “The Republican candidates looking to unseat Rep. Michael McMahon (D-Staten Island/Brooklyn) last night called for more local power to be ceded to the borough.

    Addressing around 400 people at a forum sponsored by the Molinari Republican Club (MRC) in the Hilton Garden Inn, Bloomfield, Michael Allegretti and Michael Grimm said that the Island needs a greater say in borough concerns, but that secession wasn’t the answer.”

    James Molinaro, Staten Island’s Conservative borough president endorsed Democratic incumbent Michael McMahon for re-election to Congress Tuesday.

    McMahon’s opponents include Republican candidate Michael Grimm, who received the support of former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and former Representative Guy Molinari.

    In his endorsement in Bloomfield Tuesday, Molinaro said he believes in the work McMahon has done for the district.

    “At the present time I’m backing him, yes. I’m supporting McMahon for Congress,” said the borough president. “I think he’s done a good job, he’s represented the people of the district. And that’s what he has to do and he went down there to do that. So I think he should be rewarded with another term.”

    “I’m proud to have his support,” said McMahon. “He’s a common sense pragmatist and that’s what I try to bring to my approach in Washington as well.”

    McMahon, who was first elected in 2008, represents Staten Island and parts of southern Brooklyn.–borough-president-crosses-party-line-to-endorse-mcmahon
