State Senator Hiram Monserrate of Queens dodged the felony and was convicted of misdemeanor assault. That means he keeps his seat and Democrats will not see an interuption in their one vote control of the Senate. Thank goodness for NY...We wouldn't let slashing a woman's face get in the way of more taxes and regulations.
-Steve Bradley held a campaign soire on TenEyck Street tonight. A nice crowd that included rival Jeff Smith, Councilwoman Burns and myself. GOP Chair Don Coon was there too.
-Republicans say their Congressional Candidate Diedre Scozzafava will do more barnstorming across the district in the stretch drive. A measure of the fire in her will come tomorrow night in Alex Bay when she speaks to party faithful at the GOP fall dinner.
-Prediction: The first candidate to start speaking for themselves instead of using a PR flack will go on to win. These candidates couldn't even react to a poll today without having their mouthpiece speak for them.
-I am told Scozzafava will come on the Hotline at some point. A caller promised to get Hoffman on.
-Council and County Legislative Candidates will be visiting the show as well.
