Long is one of three Republicans campaigning for the party’s nomination. The winner will take on incumbent Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in the fall.

Molinaro gave the nod to Long over Rep. Bob Turner (NY-9) and Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos, who are also running for the GOP nomination.
