Howard and Leslie Zemsky are getting behind the state Senate bid of Democrat Sean Ryan.

The couple will hold a fundraiser next week for Ryan, a state assemblyman seeking the Senate seat held by Republican Chris Jacobs, who himself is running for the House district vacated this year by GOP former Rep. Chris Collins.

Contributions to attend the Dec. 10 event at the Larkin Filling Station range from $250 to $1,000.

Howard Zemsky is a former top economic development advisor to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Democrats view the race as a potential pickup opportunity in western New York for the conference, which won the majority a year ago for the first time in a decade.
