One question.

Is this the National Movement Brandon Straka will be representing at the Armory?

Conservative activist and self-described “former liberal” Brandon Straka, a Dutchess County man and a Westchester County man who was allegedly identified by his varsity football jacket are among the latest to be charged federally for their alleged roles in the violentsiege at the U.S. Capitol on lJan. 6.

If so what do the republicans in this town represent?
