Joe Carvin has his eye on Kirsten Gillibrand's senate seat.
Carvin, a hedge fund manager who is best known to Rye Brook and Port Chester readers as the Rye Town supervisor, is a fiscal conservative and social moderate. When he on Wednesday, the Republican touted his financial experience and contrasted himself with Gillibrand, calling the junior senator "a classic politican."
Gillibrand was appointed to the senate in 2009 when Hillary Clinton vacated the seat to join the Obama administration. Previously a two-term congresswoman, this November will mark the first time Gillibrand's run for state-wide office.
Carvin hopes to unseat her, but first he'll have to convince state Republicans he's the man for the job.
