When Yossi Gestetner recently resigned as the director of Jewish outreach for the New York State Republican Party, he claimed that Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos is supporting Felder over Storobin. But Storobin said he’s confident that he has the full support of Skelos. “For him to pass a bill with my name on it means Skelos supports me and wants me to win,” Storobin said. “We have a good relationship and I assume Skelos will publicly support me.” Another public supporter of Storobin’s is Yidel Perlstein, chairman of Community Board 12, despite the fact that City Councilman David Greenfield, a close friend and political ally of Perlstein’s, is supporting Felder.
