Unless you think people who live in Buffalo are idiots, there must be something to the Paladino phenomenon. In "Carl Country" the candidate grabbed 93% of the vote in Erie County with heavy turnout....They know him best as he has been high profile for some time. But the more dainty and refined, Wall Street slobbering wing of Republicanism is scared and running away from the will of the people.
As we have found with the Delaware primary, there is the party establishment anxious to make sure their party gets credit for having a majority or holding a seat......Then there are people who could care less about that game and want someone who has the idealogical conviction to actually do something.
I will be anxious to see if Doheny, Ritchie, Blankenbush and Forsythe will embrace their party's nominee or whether they will have "scheduling conflicts" when the candidate comes to NNY.
Republican lawmakers were told yesterday to keep their Tea Party-friendly GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino "at arm's length." - NYPOST.com
