USA Goalie Loses Congressional Race

Former USA National Team goalie and USA Team Handball Board Member, Italo Zanzi, has lost his election bid for New York’s 1st Congressional District. Faced against a 2 term incumbent and an election tide that will swing control of the House or Representative to the Democrats, the outcome is no surprise. Various press reports on Zanzi’s campaign were favorable, including this Long Island Newsday editorial,0,4891008.story?coll=ny-editorials-headlines, While the newspaper endorsed his opponent they note that “Zanzi has tremendous potential. Down the road there should be a place for a bright, energetic man like him in public life.”
