“From the outset, Mr. Storobin, a lawyer who started his own practice, pounced on Mr. Fidler’s negative comments about him, turning the race personal.
He generated support from the staunchly Orthodox communities who did not favor Mr. Fidler’s support of same-sex marriage. ”

“Even without an official victory, Mr. Storobin’s close race with Mr. Fidler amounted to a success for his campaign and for Republican leaders.
He took advantage of two growing and politically conservative communities in Brooklyn — Orthodox Jews, who related to Mr. Storobin’s position against same-sex marriage, and Russians, who were eager to elect a young candidate who spoke their language.”
