Had a nice chat last night with GOP Assembly candidate David Forsythe who is running hard to wrest the 118th seat from one term lawmaker Addie Russell.
Mr. Forsythe had been in Cape Vincent for an event and it sounds like he is working hard on the race. Campaigns are about proving yourself so we will see how he does.
Independent gubernatorial candidate Kristen Davis is due to call the HOTLINE radio show today to discuss her bid. She is one of a passle of third party candidates.
Today is crunch time for Democrat Brian McGrath who is hoping an appeals court puts him back on the ballot after GOP lawyers successfully got him nixed over the wording on his petition. There are lots of these court cases trickling through the system across the state....Seems like this is one of those years when aggressive challenging is in vogue.....
Congressional candidate Doug Hoffman was on Capital Tonight last night....Most of the discussion was about campaign tick-tock....Polls, finances,will you get out when you lose the primary ? Hoffman says he is well ahead of challenger Matt Doheny, while the local GOP high command is predicting Doheny wins with 60 to 65 %.
What is increasingly obvious is that if Hoffman wins, the party poobahs will sit on their hands in the fall and let the seat stay in Owens hands. Lot of ill will between Hoffman and the chairs.
For all the talk of the Ground Zero mosque, the project is still far from being built, with the latest reports suggesting planning for the structure is only in the nascent stage.
The pesky mosque continues to dominate cable new coverage.
