Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch is firmly in Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's camp despite having backed her Republican challenger, Rep. Bob Turner, when he ran for Congress in 2011.
"She was in my office about two weeks ago. I told her I’m on her campaign committee," he said. "I’ll be her advance man. I'm a little old, but I'll be her advance man."
Koch backed Turner when he ran to fill the House seat vacated by Rep. Anthony Weiner and told BuzzFeed he remains "very proud" of that endorsement. Turner jumped into the New York Senate race Tuesday.
