Rye Town Supervisor Carvin Set To Announce Bid For Congress Against Lowey

Port Chester resident to run against incumbent in re-shaped district.

Rye Town Supervisor and businessman is set this morning to announce that he's going to run for Congress against incumbent , D-Harrison.

Carvin, who last week got the backing of Larchmont Republican , who intended to run against Lowey but has found himself now in the district of U.S. Rep. Eliot Engel, D-Bronx, as a result of the judicially-ordered Congressional redistricting for the 2012 election. Rosen decided not to move to get back into Lowey's district, and he will not be challenging Engel.

Carvin, a Port Chester native, is set to announce his congressional race at 11 a.m. at Rye Town Hall.

Carvin says he running to "reign in Washington's reckless spending and debt that are costing American jobs and threatening the economic competitiveness of future generations."

After making the announcement in Westchester, Carvin plans on going to Rockland County, making the announcement locally in that part of the district. Under the redistricting, Lowey will represent all of Rockland County — currently, she only represents New City, Congers and Haverstraw in Rockland County.

Carvin recently decided he would not run for U.S. Senate against incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand. In addition to being town superivsor, Carvin is a hedge fund manager with Altima Partners in New York City.

I don't know Joe Carvin, but if Mark Rosen endorsed him, that's good enough for me. Lowey is useless.

Lowey train will never be derailed- get used to it- too much sway in DC, too much $$
