In releasing the candidate ratings, NYSRPA President Tom King had this advice for voters:

"Everyone needs to vote for Rob Astorino for Governor, preferably on the Conservative line. For state legislative races, vote for the highest rated candidate in each district. If the incumbent voted for the so-called SAFE Act and is rated "FS", vote for their opponent no matter who they are or what their grade is. They do not respect your civil rights."
