“Brooklyn’s own Senator Schumer will make an exceptional Senate Majority Leader when the new Congress is sworn into office in 2017. Throughout his career as Assembly Member, Member of Congress and as Senator, Senator Schumer has been a vociferous defender of New York City , a strong ally of the middle-class and has tenaciously fought for the rights of immigrants. I know as Majority Leader he will continue to push to make our country a more fair and just place for everyone.”
