With less than a month until the Republican primary for the 15th State Senate District, Congressmember Peter King endorsed Councilmember Eric Ulrich – adding to the long list of endorsements for the city representative.

“Eric understands that the way to put New Yorkers back to work and grow our economy is by lowering taxes on families and small businesses and reigning in the reckless government spending that has created unsustainable deficits and threatens our competitiveness,” King said. “His conservative principles of limited government, safe streets and a strong quality of life will make him an excellent representative in Albany and I urge all Republicans to vote for him on September 13th.”

Ulrich, who is facing off against former Guiliani staffer Juan Reyes, said he was proud of King’s endorsement, as well as the 10-term representative’s tenure in the House.

“I’m honored to receive the support of Congressman King, a true public servant who has done a great deal for the people of New York,” Ulrich said. “I look forward to working closely with him as a partner on the state level to keep New York City safe, ensure our veterans coming home from war are cared for and revive our economy.”

The primary winner will face off against State Senator Joseph Addabbo, who has represented the district since 2009.

Ozone Park native Ulrich has picked up other major endorsements, including Congressmember Bob Turner, former Governor George Pataki, the Senate Republicans Election Committee and the Queens Conservative and Queens Independent parties.
