Schimel vs. Schimel In New York Assembly Race

NEW HEMPSTEAD, N.Y., (UPI) — A New York state lawmaker says she’ll run for re-election on her record even though her opponent is her estranged husband.

The potential for some real mudslinging is definitely there, but Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel, a Democrat, said she would not alter her campaign strategy in her run against Republican nominee Mark Schimel.

The incumbent told the New york Daily News she would stand “on the issues and on my record” although some Democratic party officials on Long Island muttered to the newspaper that the GOP was trying to pull the campaign down into the gutter – an allegation the Republican side denied.

Mark Schimel himself had no immediate comment on the odd situation, but his mother was aghast at the prospect of her son and daughter-in-law slugging it out in public. “This is a really startling thing,” said Irma Schimel.

Irma said the news that her son was throwing his hat into the ring was “a shock” and noted she had received a Mother’s Day card from Michelle. “I love her very much,” she said. “I can’t believe he’d do a thing like this. I’m going to talk to him.”
