Clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

Long formally announced her candidacy with an online video. She is expected to formally receive the state GOP nomination during a meeting of party leaders in Buffalo. Long, a lawyer who once clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is expected to also receive the state Conservative Party endorsement.

Her introduction video includes snippets of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump while she declares "this is an election year unlike any we've ever seen before." Then cutting to black-and-white pictures of Schumer with Hillary Clinton, Long continues that "we the people are standing up against the politics of the status quo and against the corruption and cronyism of career politicians in Washington."

OpEd: provides conservative Republican ideological diversity

Simply put, New York deserves a more substantive senator than Kirsten Gillibrand--a woman who turned her back on her comparatively moderate House record to become a full-fledged knee-jerk left-liberal. But given the sorry state of the New York Republican Party, there really weren't many top-flight candidates willing to give her a run for her money. Too bad. She needed a real challenge.

Alas, Long has been nearly invisible since her resounding win in the GOP primary, which she got thanks to the backing of the state Conservative Party. Frankly, we doubt that Rep. Bob Turner, whom she defeated in that race, would've been such a shrinking violet. Certainly, she was never able to raise much money.

But we support Long, because she's far superior on the issues, and because there should be some ideological diversity in New York's political leadership, where Republicans--and especially conservative Republicans--are rare birds.
