  1. The candidates name is Daniel Friedman, not David. It’s a shame that he lost, we went to school together and he definately has the skill necessary to become a good leader.

  2. I know Phil very well. He was my father’s accountant 30 years ago and was a great upstanding member of the frum community.
    I’m only sorry there had to be a loser in this race. I will b”n ask Phil to switch parties after the general. Would be great to have him as a Republican.
