Friedman Drops Out, Endorses Demeza Delhomme

photoPolitics takes strange twists and turns. Bitter rivals just a month ago, Spring Valley mayoral candidates Demeza Delhomme and Daniel Friedman are now pals.

Friedman, whose name will appear on the Independence and Conservative Party lines in the November election, announced he has ceased his campaign and endorsed Trustee Demeza Delhomme.

The Haitian lawmaker had beaten Friedman and other handily in the September Democratic Party primary. The pair said they were joining together “as Democrats” for the sake of party unity as Delhomme faces a strong challenge from GOP candidate Allan Thompson, the former mayor of the village.
