Congressman Gregory Meeks (D-Queens, Nassau) is set to join the parade of local officials endorsing former Councilman Leroy Comrie in his bid to unseat state Sen. Malcolm Smith (D-Hollis).

Meeks is expected to lead a contingent of up to a dozen elected office holders giving the challenger their backing Tuesday morning at Comrie’s campaign headquarters in St. Albans.

In a related matter, Democratic donors also appear to be flocking to Comrie.

In campaign finance reports filed last week, which are mandated by the state 32 days before the Sept. 9 primary, Comrie’s camp reported more than $81,000 still in the bank.

By contrast, records obtained on the state Board of Elections website said Malcolm A. Smith for New York filed a “No Activity Statement” for the period between July 15 — the previous date for mandatory campaign finance updates — and Aug. 4.

Welcome to the discussion.
