Early voting is now under way in the “Mazi vs. Suozzi” campaign for New York’s Third Congressional District in Nassau County. The results won’t be known until after polls close on Tuesday, February 13th, but many pundits already feel this election could be a harbinger for the national elections nine months from now. WOR street reporter Natalie Migliore found LIRR riders who will be among the voters making their voices heard over the next week. She appeared on 710 WOR’s Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program to share their attitudes.

One potential voter says neither side has made it clear what they stand for, which makes his choice harder. “I think if you’re going to run for office, you have to tell us who you are, what you stand for, where you came from, and what are your views. Ok, sure you can knock the other guy, sure. What are you going to do? That happens all the time, but I’m going to vote based on your merits and your experience. I haven’t seen any of that.”

Migliore found another potential voter who hopes the GOP did a better job this time picking its candidate. “All they have to do is kind of vet the person, I mean, like, how much time would it have taken to look behind the curtain? It’s also our job, I would think, right? I mean, if you’re voting, people should kind of do some of their own homework, to a degree. It just, I don’t know, it just seems like it’s a one-in-a-generation that something like this could happen, but… it’s just crazy.”

And, Migliore found one exasperated Nassau resident who summed up her logic in backing Suozzi like this: “He can’t be any worse than that Santos character, so- and I don’t want to pay for his botox anymore!”
