Senator Kirsten Gillibrand took another lambasting this week from the NY Post in this op/ed....There is clearly blood in the water on the Democratic side as Gillibrand has been unable to take her Senate appointment and build a solid political persona. Her anti-banking statements threaten NYC's vital finance industry and her defense of ACORN in a Senate vote last summer was tone deaf. So far her protector, fellow Senator Charles Schumer has chased away challengers and the Republicans have been unable to field a candidate
The emergence and aggressive tactics of Harold Ford Jr is exposing Gillibrand's weaknesses and that may only bring out more challengers in both parties. Today it was reported GOP Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb is pondering a challenge to her in what Massachusetts voters have turned into a not-so-Democratic year.
If an unknown, upstate, Assembly back-bencher thinks he can beat her....yes she is in trouble.
