The East Hampton Democrats opened headquarters for the campaign for Hillary Clinton, nominee for president, and Anna Throne-Holst, nominee to represent New York’s First Congressional District, on Saturday at 53 the Circle in East Hampton.

East Hampton Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell endorsed both candidates at the grand opening of the headquarters. “I have had many personal contacts with Hillary Clinton, who is not only the best qualified person we have had running for president but exceptionally warm and caring,” he said. He called Ms. Throne-Holst, a former Southampton Town supervisor, “a leader in our local issues and a pioneer on water preservation. She will be a wonderful representative for us in Congress.”

“It is great to see the enthusiasm of East Hampton voters and volunteers for our campaign,” Ms. Throne-Holst said. She called her opponent, Representative Lee Zeldin, “Tea Party down the line” and urged a strong “get-out-the-vote” effort to defeat him in the Nov. 8 election. Mr. Zeldin is seeking his second term in the House of Representatives.

The campaign office is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and four evenings per week.
