MINEOLA - Nassau County Legislative Minority Leader Kevan Abrahams endorsed his one time political opponent Kathleen Rice in her run for Congress.

Abrahams was defeated by the Nassau County District Attorney in the Democratic primary to run for the seat Rep. Carolyn McCarthy is leaving.

Abrahams announced Monday that Rice has his full support.

Rice will face Republican and former Nassau Legislative Presiding Officer Bruce Blakeman in November's elections.
