As a New Yorker, it is so surprising how many republican leaders have found her an intelligent, concerned, and responsible senator.

If you know of any pork she pushed through, I would love to hear about it. She, and I--and almost all New Yorkers--have been furious that the anti-terrorism money became pork. Per capita, NY has gotten far far fewer dollars than states with much lower risks. For example-Iowa cornfields or Tennessee small town police. The morgue for the 9/11 body parts is at my corner and still identifying remains.

Perhaps I'm unaware of the pork she's brought in. Please be specific. For example, NYC needs a 2nd Ave subway, which was approved and started before the money crunch in the Ford administration. That subway would reduce congestion and pollution and cost a fraction of the $50 million per capita of the Alaska bridge.
