Where do vulture's hang out when they are not picking the carcass ?.....They blend in...But with an open Assembly seat suddenly available there are lots of birds swooping in for dinner.
One to watch is West Carthage Mayor Scott Burto.
Mayor Burto was an ardent DeDe supporter and didn't like the events of last year. He also was rebuffed for consideration to run for the 122nd when it looked like Ms. Scozzafava would be the next Member of Congress. He is not a conformist in the GOP like other family members.
In Judes blog, Mayor Burto expresses interest in the race, but lets take it a step further.....I am not so sure he sees the GOP as the path to take and that might explain reports of a a mid-day meeting in Watertown with high level local Democrats.
Conventional wisdom is that this is a noncompetitive district for Democrats. In this year of upheaval I don't rule out anything.
